Swell Summary

A small, medium period north swell will hold through today and then be reinforced by a slightly higher north swell tonight into Saturday. These primarily north swells will maintain low end north, along with a west wrap, surf the next couple of days. A small, medium period west northwest swell generated by Typhoon Mindulle will likely reach the western islands next Tuesday. The ongoing overlapping small, medium to long period south southwest swells that have kept south surf from going completely flat will begin to fade today. Choppy wind wave surf along most eastern exposures will remain small. A stronger trade fetch upstream of the islands through Saturday will provide a slight boost to east facing shore surf this weekend.
