...HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH WEST AND EAST FACING SHORES...

Surf along north facing shores will be 8 to 12 feet, rising to 12 to
16 feet this afternoon through Tuesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 4 to 8 feet, rising to 8 to 12
feet this afternoon through Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 5 to 8 feet through Tuesday.

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

Outlook through Monday January 29:
A combination of strengthening trades and an easterly swell will
continue to generate advisory level surf through Tuesday for east
facing shores. Although the trades are forecast to weaken through the
second half of the week, the easterly swell will likely hold due to a
persistent area of fresh to strong trades well east of the islands.
Surf along north and west facing will likely hold at advisory levels
through Tuesday before slowly trending down through midweek. A small
long-period northwest swell will be possible over the upcoming
weekend. An out-of-season small south swell will hold into Tuesday
before slowly trending down through midweek.

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.
