349 AM HST Thu Jul 27 2017

Surf along north facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Friday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Friday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet through Friday.

Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Friday.

Outlook through Thursday August 03:
Relatively quiet surf will persist through most of the period. A
series of small southwest to southeast background swells will
maintain small surf along the south facing shores. Locally breezy
trade winds will support rough and choppy surf along the east facing
shores. Mid to long period east swells from distant tropical
activity are forecast to reinforce the trade wind swell from late
Saturday into midweek. This will be monitored over the next few days
with regards to timing and potential height. A small mid to long
period west swell, from a  distant typhoon, is forecast to arrive
Friday and may cause a slight  boost to exposed west facing shore
this weekend.

Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The
surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average
height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest
breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the
significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near
any surf zone.
