North: Wave heights are expected knee/waist high today for spots open to the northwest. Olaf swell is expected to impact east exposures with shoulder to slightly overhead waves. This swell is expected to ease through the day.

West:  Wave heights waist/chest high are expected today. The best exposures could get up to shoulder to head high on the sets from time to time. Spots shadowed by other islands will be smaller.

South: The south-southwest is expected to bring waist/head high waves today. The best breaks could be overhead on the sets by sunset. Spots catching wrap from Olaf could reach waist high or more from time to time.

Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 6.31.26 PMTropical swell generated by hurricane Olaf continues to impact the east shores of the Big Island and Maui. The swell is on a downward trend and expected to drop further Tuesday and Wednesday.

Our current south-southwest swell continues to fade while a new reinforcement fills in. The new swell is expected to peak Tuesday before beginning to fade Wednesday.

A larger NW swell is forecast to build Tuesday with surf heights reaching advisory levels.

 

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.
