    North: Wave heights are expected waist/chest high today for spots catching the trade swell. Many spots will remain pretty flat.

    West:  Wave heights knee/waist high are expected today as our SSW fades. Spots shadowed by other islands will be smaller.

    South: The south-southwest is expected to bring knee/waist high waves today.

    Screen Shot 2015-09-23 at 8.10.44 PMOur SSW swell is expected to slowly fade through the week. Small scale south-southwest swells are expected through the end of the month but nothing super notable.

    Trade winds will continue to generate short-period choppy surf at moderate levels along east facing shores through the weekend. Other than that, there is nothing of note out of the NPAC.

    Tropical Storm Malia is not expected to be a swell maker for the islands.

    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.
