Swell Summary

The small to moderate northwest swell that arrived yesterday is slated to peak today followed by a slow decline through Friday. Look for a long- period west- northwest swell to reach the islands Monday and peak Tuesday, followed by a slow decline as well. A reinforcing small short period west- northwest to northwest pulse is due to arrive next week Wednesday night. Surf will remain small through the middle of next week along the south facing shores due to a continuous stream of small long period pulses from the south and southwest. The increasing trade wind today through Friday will bump up the surf to small to moderate heights along the east facing shores.
