Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo side: Surf heights are expected to be chest/head high today. The best exposures could get up to overhead on the sets but easing through the day.
Kona side: Flat in the morning with knee/thigh high waves by sunset. The best exposures could get up to waist high. Exposures not open to the swell will be flat.
South: Flat in the morning with knee/thigh high waves by sunset. The best exposures could get up to waist high.
Small surf is forecast for southerly exposures. New small southwest is forecast to fill in today, peak Wednesday and fade thereafter. Not expected to get very much past waist high. Hawaii could see a swell out of the south-southeast later this week.
Fun north-northwest pulse peaked yesterday and is forecast to gradually ease up through Wednesday. A small reinforcement is forecast to fill in Wednesday night but it should be short-lived and fade pretty fast on Thursday.
Trade swell is forecast to begin building as early as Tuesday and could be at advisory levels by Thursday.
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.
