Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the swell are expected to be knee/shoulder high today. Spots without direct exposure to the swell will be smaller.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today.
South: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today out of the southwest. Spots with exposure from wind waves could be head high or more.
Our northwest pulse is on the way down today. Storm activity isn’t expected and therefore there are no notable swells on the horizon.
Our current southerly mix is below waist high. Some long period southerly forerunners could filter in late on Monday. A better southwest is forecast from midweek through Friday. We may get a decent swell for next week. Will keep an eye on it.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
