Big Island Surf Forecast

Hilo: Wave heights are expected to be shoulder high to overhead on the sets today.

Kona: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today. Wrap from the north swell could bring up to shoulder high waves (spots north of Kalaoa).

South: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today.

Our current north swell is fading. A series of northerly swells are forecast to move through the state over the next week.

Another northwest swell and north swell are forecast to fill in Tuesday possibly bringing advisory level surf Tuesday night and Wednesday.

A large reinforcement is forecast for 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.
