Hilo side: Wave heights for spots exposed to the trade swell are expected to be around waist/head high.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee high today with the best breaks catching maybe a waist high wave on the sets in the morning.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee high today with the best breaks catching maybe a waist high wave on the sets in the morning.
Our current south-southwest swell is fading out. Overlapping south-southwest swells in the knee to waist high range are expected for Tuesday and Wednesday. Another fun swell is expected to build Thursday into Friday and peak over the weekend.
Trade swell will bring surf to northeast exposures but onshore breeze will pick up quickly during the day to chop it up.
Quiet in the North Pacific at this time.
East swell from Blas continues into the work week. Hurricane Celia will likely generate more swell, possibly for the weekend. Will keep an eye on the development and bring you details as they become clearer.
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.
