October 24, 2018 Surf ForecastOctober 24, 2018, 5:00 AM HST · Updated October 24, 5:00 AM 0 Comments
Outlook through Wednesday October 31: Advisory-level surf is expected to hold along south facing shores through Friday as a new long-period south swell fills in through tonight. Another reinforcement expected on Friday may support advisory-level conditions into Saturday before easing later in the weekend through early next week. Overlapping north-northwest swells will support moderate surf continuing through Friday. A larger north- northwest swell is expected to fill in late Saturday, potentially resulting in advisory-level surf for north facing shores Saturday night through Sunday. Near advisory-level surf will be possible late Tuesday through Wednesday of next week as a long-period northwest swell fills in.
Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.
