Swell Summary

Expect small surf along north and west facing shore through Tuesday as the current northwest swell moves through the island chain. Another slightly larger, northwest swell will fill in late tonight into Sunday, before slowly subsiding Monday into Tuesday. Surf along south facing shores will remain near to above average through much of next week as a long- period south- southwest swell fills in today, and peaks late tonight into tomorrow. A long period, south swell is anticipated to fill in late Monday, peak late Tuesday, then slowly subside into the second half of next week. Moderate to fresh trades will continue to generate rough, choppy surf along east facing shores.
