November 05, 2018 Surf ForecastNovember 5, 2018, 5:00 AM HST · Updated November 5, 5:00 AM 0 Comments
Outlook through Monday November 12: No major swells are expected until the end of the week. A small west- northwest swell today will diminish slightly Tuesday, with another small northwest swell Wednesday and Thursday. A small south swell is possible Friday and Saturday. An increasing short-period north swell is possible toward the end of the week and next weekend, potentially pushing surf heights close to advisory levels along north facing shores.
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.
