The National Weather Service has extended the High Surf Advisory for east-facing shores of Maui and Molokai‘i until 6 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.

An incoming north-northeast swell will keep surf near advisory levels today before an increase late Sunday as the swell fills in.

Expect surf along east-facing shores of 5 to 8 feet this afternoon through tonight. Forecast surf heights are estimates of the height of the face or front of waves.

Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and strong longshore and rip currents, making swimming difficult and dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials.
