Swell Summary

No swell arrivals equate to very small surf along all shores the next couple of days.

The next small north northwest swell is scheduled to arrive Sunday and peak north and west facing shore surf into Monday morning with a gradual fall late Monday into Tuesday. A small northwest swell will fill in through mid week that will provide a minor boost in surf along many Kauai and Oahu north facing shorelines Thursday.

Small, long period southerly swells will keep surf from completely going flat along southern coasts. A couple of larger, long period southern pulses Tuesday and Thursday will pick south facing surf up to near seasonal heights.

Several days of sustained moderate to fresh trade winds over and upstream of the islands will maintain small period, wind wave choppy surf along most eastern exposures through Saturday morning. A weakening of trades going into late Saturday will result in a subtle lowering of recently elevated eastern shore surf early next week. An increase in eastern surf will likely occur as trades pick back up during the middle of next week.
