Big Island Surf Forecast

Hilo side: Wave heights are forecast to be ankle/waist high today.

Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today and fading.

South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today and fading.

Our current west-northwest swell continues to ease through the weekend. A small northwest pulse could fill in Sunday and early next week. The second half of next week we expect some stronger pulses of surf energy.

Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific.

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.
