Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Surf heights are expected to be waist high today out of the northwest. The best exposures could get chest high on the sets.
Kona side: Surf heights are expected to be up to be pretty flat today.
South: Surf heights are expected to be up to knee high or less today.
Nothing significant is on the radar for southerly exposures at this time.
Our current northwest swell is forecast to slowly ease into the weekend. We could see some other swells developing from some storms in the northwest Pacific. Will keep an eye on it.
Over the weekend the trade swell is forecast to drop as winds weaken.
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.
