Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high at the best breaks open to the swell.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be waist/head high with the best breaks getting up to overhead on the sets.
South: Wave heights are expected to be waist/head high with the best breaks getting up to overhead on the sets.
Our current south-southwest swell continues to hold Wednesday and Thursday before beginning to ease late Thursday. Still, it will keep surf in the “fun” range through the weekend.
Nothing much is expected out of the North Pacific at this time.
Trade swell will be decreasing as winds decrease.
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.
