screen-shot-2016-11-04-at-9-20-15-pmOur current north-northwest swell is impacting the Hilo side and some wrap will continue to move into Kona sides as it slowly eases through the weekend. A couple more swells are looking promising for next week.

Nothing significant is expected out of the SPAC with minimal leftovers expected this week.

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.
