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 ankle/knee high today.
South: Wave heights are expected to be ankle/knee high today.
Our current longer-period late season northwest swell continues Tuesday and eases Wednesday.
Pretty quiet out of the South Pacific – tiny bump possible Tuesday/Wednesday – May 12th we could see some little pulses. A better south-southwest is possible later in the month from Donna – stay tuned.
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.
