Hilo side: Wave heights shoulder high to a couple feet overhead today.

Kona side: Wave heights knee/thigh high today. Spots with less exposure will be flat.

Our current north-northeast swell is expected to peak Friday and fade into the weekend. This swell is at advisory levels for north and east facing shores. A moderate west-northwest and north-northeast are forecast to fill in around Tuesday/Wednesday of next week.

Our old south swell continues to fade.

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.
