South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today with the best breaks getting a bit bigger on the sets.

Our current south-southwest is expected to ease over the weekend and shift to a more south-southeast direction. Yet another swell is forecast for around the 27th.

Our current northwest swell is also easing over the weekend. The Big Island will be heavily shadowed from this swell. A series of mid period northwest pulses are on tap for next week with some fun sized surf expected.

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.
