    North: Wave heights are expected to be around waist/head high for spots catching the trade swell. Sets could get up to slightly overhead around Hana.

    West: Surf is waist/shoulder high and occasionally head high today out of the southwest. Spots from Kihei to around Olowalu/Lahaina will be smaller due to shadowing from the other islands.

    South: Surf is waist/shoulder high today with the best breaks getting up to head high on the sets.

    Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 8.51.21 PMOur current south-southwest swell is slowly fading Friday into the weekend. A new overlapping southerly swell will fill in Sunday and peak Monday and Tuesday around chest high. We may get a few southerly swells for the first week of July.

    Trade swell will bring choppy surf to northeast exposures and pick up some into Friday.

    Quiet in the North Pacific at this time with nothing of note generating swell energy for the foreseeable future.

    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.
