408 AM HST Mon Dec 18 2017

Surf along north facing shores will be 6 to 9 feet today, rising to 10
to 14 feet Tuesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 4 to 7 feet through Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet today, lowering 1
to 3 feet Tuesday.

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

Outlook through Monday December 25:
Advisory-level surf is possible along north facing shores Tuesday
night through midweek as a north swell fills in. A north-northwest
swell is possible over the weekend that will lead to rising surf along
north and west facing shores, likely exceeding advisory levels for
northern 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.
