Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the swell are expected to be around shoulder high today for spots exposed to the trade swell.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be chest/head high today with a slow decrease through the day.
South: Wave heights are expected to be chest/head high with occasional overhead sets today with a decrease through the day.
Our current south-southwest swell is expected to slowly decrease through the week. A reinforcement out of the south is expected to keep the swell from fading too quickly.
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.
