**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 knee/waist high today with the best trade swell exposures getting up to shoulder high.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be flat up to knee/thigh high.
South: Wave heights are expected to be flat up to ankle/waist high.
Nothing significant is expected until about June 9th or so when a couple of overlapping swells are forecast. In the meantime, just trace amounts of energy not amounting to much at all. Wednesday we may see some forerunners creeping in.
Quiet in the North Pacific at this time with nothing of note generating swell energy for the foreseeable future.
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.
