Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)
A Small Craft Advisory is posted through 6 a.m. Thursday for the ʻAlenuihāhā channel.
**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. Spots without direct exposure to the swell will be smaller.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best breaks could get up to tummy/chest high on the sets.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today with Kona standout spots up to chest high. Spots around South Point could be head high.
Storm activity isn’t expected and therefore there are no notable swells on the horizon out of the NPAC.
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.
