The first Peʻahi “Jaws” swell of the 2014 – 2015 winter swell season drew out the world’s best big wave surfers including the Big Island’s Shane Dorian. Meteorologist Malika Dudley interviewed Shane about the experience.
The current north swell is fading and mixing with a shorter-period northwest swell. We expect surf heights in the waist to chest high range. Another NNW swell is on its heels expected to begin building through the day on Thursday.
An east swell generated by Tropical Storm Marie will begin entering Hawaiian waters tonight, creating advisory level surf along the east facing shores of Maui County, according to the National Weather Service.
