A northwest swell is expected to top out early Monday before slowly fading. The best spots could get up to chest or even shoulder high on the sets. The Big Island’s Kona side will likely be heavily shadowed.
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.
