South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today or less.

A larger west-northwest is lining up for the 19th through the 23rd, peaking Monday before easing some Tuesday. The Kona side will be heavily shadowed from this swell. A reinforcement is also possible Wednesday and Thursday.

Small south-southwest continues to fade. Near the end of the month we could see an improvement in wave conditions for southern exposures.

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.
