Darby swell is expected to fade out completely with trade swell being your best bet for windward exposures today. Frank & Georgette are not likely to send significant swell to the Hawaiian Islands.

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.
