North: Surf heights are expected near double overhead early in the day for the best breaks, especially for spots east of Ho’okipa. As the day goes on, the swell is expected to fade. Surf heights will be closer to a few feet overhead.

West: Spots open to the swells are expected to get waves waist to head high on the sets at the best northerly breaks. Otherwise, breaks that don’t catch the swells, and / or are shadowed from it, are forecasted to get smaller surf at ankle high or flat.

South: Mostly flat.

Screen Shot 2014-12-28 at 9.51.16 PMOur current northwest and north-northwest mix continues to fade. A small west-northwest swell is filling in today as well.

Another boost of surf energy out of the northwest is expected midweek and through the weekend.

Super small trace amounts of swell expected out of the SPAC. Not much to get excited about.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
