Swell Summary

The current long period south swell has peaked and will slowly decrease later today. The High Surf Advisory (HSA) will remain in effect through the day for all south facing shores and drop later tonight as the south swell continues to decline. Surf along west facing shores will remain elevated due to the long period south swell wrapping around the western sides of each island.

A northwest swell is building into the region today producing fun sized surf through Thursday along north facing shores. Short period trade wind swell will decline with lower trade wind speeds forecast through the week.
