Swell Summary

Rough, slightly elevated surf will persist along east facing shores into Tuesday due to the gusty trade winds. Surf heights may decrease to near the summertime average along east facing shores by mid-week as the trades weaken slightly. Surf along south facing shores will remain small through mid-week due to small south-southwest swells and localized trade wind wrap. A small west-northwest swell may provide a slight bump in surf today along some exposed west facing shores, such as on Kauai. Nearly flat conditions will continue along most north facing shores this week.
