North: Surf is expected shoulder to possibly slightly overhead at the best breaks. We could see 10 foot faces at the best spots on Molokaʻi and Maui early in the day.
West: Breaks that don’t catch the swell are forecasted to get smaller surf at knee high or smaller. Spots that are open to the north-northwest swell will get some wrap with waves expected about head high at the best breaks.
South: Ankle-slappers to flat surf conditions are expected.
Our current north-northwest swell (325-350°) is fading through the weekend.
The next swell on the horizon is expected to build through the day on Monday. A storm near the Aleutians is taking form and expected to generate the new north-northwest swell (330-350°). If so, we could see another round of overhead to double overhead surf for the best breaks along the north shores of Molokaʻi and Maui.
There’s potential for another swell out of the west-northwest for the mid to later part of next week and a series of swells through the last week of November.
Super small trace amounts of swell expected out of the SPAC. There isn’t much on the horizon out of the South Pacific.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
