North: Wave heights of about waist/shoulder high are expected today. The best breaks could get up to head high on the sets (especially at east exposed breaks).

West:  Wave heights of waist high or less are expected today. Otherwise, most spots are blocked and will be flat.

South: Wave heights of waist high or less are expected. Standout spots could get a bit bigger on the sets.

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 6.36.04 PMModerate northeast swell will gradually decline Thursday and surf will lower across north and east facing shores. The high surf advisory for east facing shores has been cancelled.

Thanks to a storm that recently developed east of New Zealand, a large south swell is anticipated to begin to arrive in Hawaii late Friday and will be large enough to bring advisory level surf heights along south facing shores this weekend.

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.
