Swell Summary

Surf along all Hawaiian Island shores will remain under High Surf Advisory thresholds the next several days.

North facing shore surf will remain very low through the day with only background north swell and a lowering trade wind wave swell. The next appreciable west northwest swell will arrive tonight and Tuesday and will peak mid week surf in the moderate range. Small west swell may be blocked from Oahu eastward due to Kauai shadowing Tuesday but, as this swell veers more northwest on Wednesday and then north northwest Thursday, surf heights along most north and west facing shores will be on the rise. A larger northwest swell arriving from a Northwest Pacific gale Friday and Saturday may peak weekend surf into the double digits (face values in feet) along some northern and western exposures.

Multi small, long period south southwest swell energy from southern hemispheric storms will be reaching the Hawaiian southern coasts during the middle of the week. These swells will provide a minor boost to mid to late week surf along many southern coastlines.

Eastern shoreline surf will also remain around spring season averages through the day but will drop off through mid week as trades weaken over and upstream of the state.
