Big Island Surf Forecast

Hilo side: Wave heights are forecast to be head high to several feet overhead today.

Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today with the best breaks getting shoulder to head high sets from time to time.

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

Our current west-northwest is filling in into Thursday morning. This is expected to be a warning level swell. The northwest shores will feel the effects with a lot of shadowing for the Kona coast.

A small south-southwest is showing through Friday with a slightly bigger swell right on its heels for the weekend.

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.
