Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Wave heights are forecast to be head high to slightly overhead today.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today.
South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today.
A longer-period late season northwest swell is expected to peak Monday and ease Wednesday.
Pretty quiet out of the South Pacific until about May 12th when we could see a little bump from storms that are expected near New Zealand the next few days. Will keep an eye on it.
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.
