South: Surf is ankle/knee high today and rising a bit by sunset.

A new south-southwest swell expected to fill in Wednesday and Thursday, peaking Thursday/Friday before fading. Yet another swell is forecast for around the 27th.

A reinforcement northwest swell is expected to build in Wednesday. A storm developing off the Kamchatka peninsula is expected to send swell our way. If it develops as forecast, we expect northwest swell to fill in late Thursday into Friday, peaking Friday before fading Saturday. The Big Island will be heavily shadowed from this swell.

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.
