**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 ankle/waist high today. Spots without direct exposure to the swell will be smaller.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high with the best breaks up to shoulder/head high on the sets.
South: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high with the best breaks up to shoulder/head high on the sets.
A storm is possible in the northwest Pacific so this could mean some swell energy filling in around the 30th. The Big Island’s Kona side will likely be heavily shadowed. Trade swell will continue to affect northeastern exposures but onshore winds mean messy conditions.
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.
