Screen Shot 2016-01-28 at 9.13.12 PMA High Surf Advisory remains in effect for north and west facing shores of Molokai and the north shore of Maui. The northwest swell will continue to gradually fade and should drop below advisory levels by late Friday.

Another large northwest swell is expected to arrive Sunday night and likely pushing surf heights back into advisory levels for north and west facing shores of most islands through early next week.

Not much expected out of the SPAC the next few days. A possible small swell could fill in February 8th.

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.
