North: Wave heights are expected to be around knee/waist/chest high for spots catching the trade swell.

West: Surf is waist/chest high and occasionally shoulder high today out of the southwest. Spots from Kihei to around Olowalu/Lahaina will be smaller due to shadowing from the other islands.

South: Surf is waist/chest high today with the best breaks getting up to shoulder high on the sets.

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 9.54.44 PMAn overlapping pair of southerly swells are maintaining wave heights through Tuesday. These swells will fade from midweek through the weekend. We may get some small overlapping swells for the first week of July.

Trade swell will bring surf to northeast exposures but onshore breeze will pick up quickly during the day to chop it up.

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.
