Swell Summary

Surf is trending up along along north and west facing shores as a mix of both medium period, north northwest and longer period, west northwest swells move around the islands. The north northwest swell should hold through the day before easing into the weekend. The long period, west northwest swell will fill in today and peak early Saturday surf near High Surf Advisory levels along smaller island northern and western exposed coasts.

Surf along south facing shores will hold through the day as the latest long period, south southwest swell moves through. This swell will slowly fade over the weekend with mainly background moderate period southern swell energy maintaining small south shore surf early next week.

East facing shore surf will remain small through the afternoon. There will be a slight increase in east coast surf as strengthened trades push in a wind wave swell. A downward trend in east surf is expected next week as trades weaken.
