Swell Summary

Surf along north and west facing shores will steadily ease through Friday as overlapping short- period northwest (330 degrees) and north (350 degrees) swells moves through. The north swell will transition to more north- northeast (20-30 degrees) today into the weekend. Surf along north and west facing shores will steadily increase Saturday into early next week as consecutive northwest (320-330 degrees) swells move through the island chain, each a little bigger than the previous. These swells could bring above average surf to north and west facing shores by early next week before slowly trending down.

Surf along east facing shores will remain small, except for shores expose to the north and northeast swells mentioned above. Small choppy surf may return to east facing shores Friday into the weekend as trades return. Small surf along south facing shores will see a little bump over the next day or two keeping surf slightly elevated into the weekend.
