North: Wave heights are expected to be pretty flat with spots around Hana around knee to knee/waist/chest high.

West: Surf is ankle/knee high today for west shores. Exposures catching the wrap from out of the southwest could get up to waist/chest high early and chest/head high by sunset.

South: Surf is waist/chest high today with a building trend up to chest/head high or more by sunset.

Screen Shot 2016-06-08 at 8.20.07 PMWe expect a series of overlapping south-southwest swells to move in over the next few days. Wave heights will build with the peak expected Sunday. Sunday the best breaks could push up to nearly double overhead.

Quiet in the North Pacific at this time with nothing of note generating swell energy for the foreseeable future.

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.
