342 PM HST Wed Aug 16 2017

Surf along south facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through

Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through Thursday.

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

Surf along west facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Thursday.

Outlook through Wednesday August 23:
Rough, moderate surf will persist along east facing shores due to
breezy trade winds. Surf may trend down along east facing shores this
weekend as the trades weaken slightly. A new small south-southeast
swell is expected to slowly fill in Thursday, peak Friday, and then
gradually subside this weekend. Another small, long-period southwest
swell is forecast to arrive Saturday, and continue into early next
week. Surf will likely remain below the High Surf Advisory criteria
along all shores.

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.
