Hilo side: Wave heights are forecast from knee/waist/chest high today.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be flat with just traces of south filtering in.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/chest high today at the best exposures. More westerly exposures will be flat.
Minimal south-southwest swell lapping in out of the South Pacific. Small south swell expected midweek and peaking Thursday and Friday.
Small northwest swell expected for the middle of the week, but the Big island is mostly blocked from this energy. Early season swell expected from the 8th to the 11th.
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.
