West:  Wave heights knee/thigh high are expected today. Spots shadowed by other islands will be pretty flat.

South: The south-southwest is expected to bring knee/waist high waves today but probably no bigger. Breaks open to the trade swell could get up to waist/head high.

Screen Shot 2015-11-02 at 8.37.04 PMA east-northeast trade swell is showing for windward coasts this week.

A new small south-southwest builds Tuesday and peaks Wednesday into Thursday before fading Friday. A slightly bigger swell is expected for the weekend.

We could see a northwest swell for the weekend if a system tracking toward the Aleutians progresses as models are currently indicating. Will keep an eye on it.

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.
