Swell Summary

The current northwest swell will decline today with surf heights rapidly decreasing along north and west facing through through Sunday. Nearly flat surf conditions expected along north and west facing shores by Monday and Tuesday. A period of fresh to strong trades upstream of the islands will keep short period, higher wind waves along many northeastern and eastern facing shores into the weekend.

A small background south swell will continue today, as a slightly larger and longer period south swell will begin to build into the region later this afternoon. This next south swell energy will peak on Saturday. This next south swell will raise surf heights along south facing shores by a couple of feet into the fun size range through Sunday and then decline into early next week.
