A small north-northeast swell is expected to show for the Kohala area.

A small southwest swell is expected to slowly fade out over the next couple days, getting down to traces by the end of the week.

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.
