Swell Summary

Strong trade winds over and upstream of the islands will keep advisory level surf in place along east facing shores through the first half of next week. A High Surf Advisory remains in effect for east facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island through 6 AM Monday morning. An uptick in surf is expected over the next few days as the winds increase locally and upstream of the state.

A series of small overlapping northwest swells will move through the area into next week, with surf remaining below advisory levels along exposed north and west facing shores. Wrapping trade wind swell continues to provide some small surf along south facing shores. A small out of season south swell will also give a boost to south shore surf later today through Saturday.
