Swell Summary

Small surf along north facing shores this morning will get a boost from a small, long-period west-northwest swell generated by Typhoon Mindulle. The forerunners of this swell have reached Kauai this morning and will spread to the other islands later tonight, this swell will last through Thursday, and then diminish on Friday. Small south swells will keep surf from going flat along south facing shores through much of the week. A slightly larger south swell may elevate surf heights 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 late Wednesday into next weekend.
