Swell Summary

Surf along exposed east facing shores will remain rough through the week, with heights hovering around High Surf Advisory (HSA) level through tonight. The HSA has been extended and will remain in effect until 6 am HST Wednesday. Heights should dip below the advisory level by sunrise Wednesday as the northeast swell begins to move out.

Surf along north facing shores will remain small into Friday, except for shores exposed to northeast swells. An upward trend is expected late Friday through the weekend due to a combination of expected north-northeast and west-northwest swells. The north- northeast swell should steadily fill in late Friday, then peak over the weekend. The west-northwest swell is forecast to build down the island chain through the day Saturday, producing surf which will peak near HSA threshold across exposed north and west facing shores late Sunday.

Surf along south facing shores will remain small through midweek, with mainly background energy moving through. An upward trend is expected Friday as a long-period south-southwest swell arrives. This swell will peak late Friday into Saturday, then ease Sunday.
