High Surf Advisory Until 6 a.m. Wednesday (Update: 3:41 a.m. 3.16.21)

Surf is expected to be in the 7-10 foot range today along the east facing shoes of Maui, Molokaʻi, Hawaiʻi Island, Oʻahu and Kauaʻi.

The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for affected shorelines until 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

The forecast calls for strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous. As a precaution, beachgoers, swimmers, and surfers are asked to heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution.
