Swell Summary

Small north to northwest swells will keep some small surf in place along north facing shores through the rest of the weekend. A small, long-period west-northwest swell, generated by Typhoon Mindulle, will boost surf along north and west facing shores of Kauai by Monday afternoon and then spread into Oahu and Maui County from Tuesday through Thursday. North shore surf will diminish to smaller heights by Friday.

Small south and southeast swells will keep surf from going flat along south facing shores through the weekend and much of next week. A slightly larger south swell may elevate surf heights along south facing shores from Friday into next weekend. East shore surf will hold fairly steady through Tuesday. Strengthening trades over and upstream of the islands will build surf heights along east facing shores from Thursday into next weekend.
