Big Island Surf Forecast
Hilo: Wave heights are expected to be head high to slightly overhead today.
Kona: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today. Some wrap from the north could still sneak in to the best exposures, especially from Kukio northward.
South: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today.
Our current northerly swell has peaked and is slowly fading and surf is expected to stay below the advisory level threshold for north shores as a new swell fills in sometime late Wednesday / Thursday. Some east shores could possibly get up to advisory levels.
A small south-southwest swell could bring a little bump Wednesday as well.
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.
