Swell Summary

The west northwest swell that filled in yesterday has leveled out this morning. A similar size reinforcing west northwest swell is scheduled to arrive later this morning and afternoon. The High Surf Advisory (HSA) remains in effect for the north and west facing shores of the smaller islands through the afternoon. The next moderate size, medium period west northwest swell is expected to arrive sometime Tuesday. This swell has the potential to elevate mid week surf back up to HSA levels. East facing shore surf will remain somewhat elevated today as a small easterly swell originating from an upstream fresh to strong trade fetch comes across the island chain. Surf along south facing shores will remain slightly higher than winter norms as these shores continue to receive more medium to long period swell energy from the Southern Hemisphere the next couple of days.
