Swell Summary

A series of small south and south-southwest swells will keep near to slightly below normal surf in place along south facing shores through Wednesday. South shore surf could trend up slightly late next week as a new south-southwest swell moves through the island chain.

Surf along north and west facing shores will remain small today, then trend up Sunday through Tuesday as a new northwest swell moves through. This swell will then trend down Wednesday through late next week.

Surf along east facing shores will remain small through Tuesday, then trend up Wednesday through late next week as the trades strengthen over and upstream of the islands.
