screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-9-59-49-pmEast-northeast trades are creating a trade wind swell for the Hilo side through the week.

Our small northwest swell is expected to continue through Thursday. Kona side will be heavily shadowed from these swells. A solid northwest is expected for December 2.

Our current south-southwest swell is expected to fade Wednesday through the rest of the work 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.
