Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Surf heights are expected to be ankle/waist high today.
Kona side: Wave heights are expected to be ankle/knee high today. Flat for many Kona breaks not catching the swell.
South: Wave heights are expected to be ankle/knee high today.
No significant swells are expected through the rest of this week. A series of minimal south swells is expected to keep background swell going along southern exposures. A small bump this weekend could push wave heights up a little for south facing shores. We could see a slightly bigger run of swell starting around the 19th of this month.
Small trade wind swells will continue to produce small choppy surf along east facing shores.
There’s a good chance Tropical system Fernanda will produce swell for us later next week. 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.
