Swell Summary

Surf along all Hawaiian shores will be well under high surf advisory thresholds the next several days.

North facing shore surf will remain very low through Monday with only a small background north swell. The next appreciable west northwest swell will arrive Monday night and Tuesday and this will peak surf in the moderate range. This swell will transition to more northwest Wednesday and then north northwest on Thursday. As this swell diminishes, another potentially larger late week northwest swell may peak weekend surf into the double digits (face values in feet) along northern and western exposures.

Multi short and long period south southwest swell energy along southern coasts will continue to support near to slightly under seasonable south shore surf today.

Eastern shoreline surf will also remain around spring season averages through Monday but will drop off through mid week as trade winds weaken over and upstream of the state.
