South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best breaks could get a little bit bigger.

Our current south-southwest swell is holding through Tuesday before fading Wednesday. A couple more swells are expected for June 29th and July 3rd. Will keep an eye on it.

Trade swell mixing with northeast swell will bring waist to head high waves for the Hilo side through Tuesday. Wednesday trade wind swell takes over.

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.
