Big Island Surf Forecast

Our current south-southwest swell is slowly fading Wednesday. A couple more swells are expected for June 29th and July 3rd.
Trade swell mixing with fading northeast swell will bring knee/waist/chest high waves for the Hilo side. There isn’t anything on the radar out of the North Pacific.
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.
