Kona: Wave heights are expected to be below waist high today.

South: Surf heights expected around knee/waist high today.

Our current west-northwest is expected to ease from Wednesday through the rest of the work week. Surf should stay below advisory levels from this swell energy.

A series of new north-northeast swells are filling in this week bringing on High Surf Advisory conditions for east shores. The current north-northeast is peaking today and easing through the rest of the week.

Small southerly swells will continue with small background swell for south facing shores.

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.
