Swell Summary

Small north and north-northwest swells will keep some small surf in place along north facing shores through the weekend. A small long period west-northwest swell generated by Typhoon Mindulle, will give a boost to surf along north and west facing shores Tuesday through Thursday. North shore surf should drop to very small levels for the end of next week.

Small south swells will keep surf from going flat along south facing shores through the weekend and much of next week. A slightly larger south swell could give a noticeable boost to south shore surf Friday into next weekend.

East shore surf will hold fairly steady near to slightly below normal levels through the middle of next week. Strengthening trades over and upstream of the islands should build east shore surf above normal Friday into next weekend.
