Swell Summary

A pair of overlapping south swells will keep south shore surf near the summertime average through Tuesday. Only small background south swells are then expected Wednesday through next weekend, keeping surf well below normal along south facing shores.

Surf along east facing shores will hold steady through Tuesday due to strong trades over and upstream of the islands. The trade wind swell will lower Wednesday and remain well below normal through next weekend. Distant tropical activity in the eastern Pacific may send a small, long-period east swell through the islands Wednesday through Friday, giving a slight boost to east shore surf.
