Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the swell are expected to be waist/chest 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 shoulder high or more.
Small southerly swell is showing. A better southwest is forecast from Tuesday through Friday. We may get a fun swell for next week. Will keep an eye on it.
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.
