A Small Craft Advisory is posted for Big Island windward waters through 6 p.m. Monday and could be extended if conditions persist.
**Click directly on the images below to make them larger. Charts include: Big Island projected winds, tides, swell direction & period and expected wave heights.**
Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the swell are expected to be shoulder / head high today. The best breaks could be slightly overhead on the sets but smaller for spots without direct exposure to the swell.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. Spots with exposure to the northwest swell will be bigger.
Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Minimal southerly swells will trickle in over the next few days. The next swell is expected to build in Thursday and peak Friday.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
