Swell Summary

Surf along north facing shores will hold steady through Monday due to a persistent short-to-medium period mix of north-northwest to north-northeast energy moving through. As this energy eases into Tuesday, a medium-period, moderate northwest swell should arrive and begin to build down the island chain Tuesday night through Wednesday. Expect this new swell to linger into next weekend before lowering. Surf along south facing shores will remain up into Monday, then trend down Tuesday through midweek as a south-southwest swell eases. A similar south-southwest swell will be possible late in the week.
