Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the swell are expected to be shoulder high today. Spots without direct exposure to the swell will be smaller.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today at the best breaks on the sets.
South: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today out of the southwest. Spots with exposure from wind waves could be bigger than that.
A small south-southwest swell is expected to continue filling in Friday into the weekend with waist/chest high surf expected.
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.
