Big Island Surf Forecast

Hilo side: We expect knee/shoulder high waves today. Head high sets at the best breaks.

Kona side: Spots catching the northwest could get up to shoulder high if they have direct exposures. Out of the southwest waist high or less.

South: Surf heights expected to be up to ankle/waist high.

Our current northwest swell is forecast to continue easing. A smaller moderate size northwest swell is expected to arrive Tuesday.

The east facing shores will get some wrap from the large northwest swells. Otherwise, surf will be small as the winds are expected to become light and variable.

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.
