The National Weather Service has extended a high surf advisory for Big Island’s west-facing shores to 6 p.m.

Surf is expected to be 6 to 8 feet along west-facing shores of the Big Island. Surf heights will
gradually lower as the current northwest swell slowly declines through the day.

Moderate will be moderate. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers, and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.
