Swell Summary

A series of large to extra large northwest swells will impact the state through early next week. The current northwest swell will slowly trend lower today. Surf heights will remain at advisory levels today for north and west facing shores of the smaller islands (north facing shores of Maui and the Big Island). The first extra large northwest swell will arrive this evening, quickly pushing surf well above warning levels by Saturday morning. This new northwest swell will potentially become the largest surf event of the season so far. Surf will trend slowly lower Saturday night through Sunday, but remain well above warning levels through the weekend. Another extra large northwest swell is expected to build into Hawaii waters on Monday, producing another round of warning level surf. This swell begins to diminish Tuesday as another north swell fills in, with moderate swell heights holding through Wednesday. Some larger surf may wrap into south and east facing shores exposed to large northwest swells. Otherwise, surf along south and east facing shores will remain small through the first half of next week.
