Surf Zone Forecast for Hawaii
National Weather Service Honolulu HI
342 PM HST Thu Sep 29 2022

.DISCUSSION...A series of small swells from the north-northwest to
north (340 to 350 deg) are expected through Friday. Forerunners from
a slightly larger north swell will fill in Friday and peak over the
weekend. A cut off low will develop far north of the state today
through Friday, sending a north to north-northeast swell (010 to 020
deg) towards the islands that should arrive by Sunday. The fetch
pointing towards the state may have winds reaching gale force, which
may result in surf exceeding the High Surf Advisory threshold for
north facing shores on Monday. This swell should also wrap into select
east facing shores, which will produce an increase in surf.

Surf will remain small along south facing shores over the next few
days with mainly background energy from the south and southeast.
Another small, more noticeable long-period south swell is
expected to fill in Sunday into Monday then decline through the
middle of next week.

East facing shores will remain small during the next several days
due to the lack of strong trade winds upstream of the state.

Product Legend:

Surf:        Height of the surf from trough to crest (face value)
             in feet.

Tides:       Heights displayed are relative to the Mean Lower Low
             Water (MLLW) datum in feet.

Surf heights can vary significantly from beach to beach along a
coastline. Surf larger than the upper end of the range provided in
the forecast will occur periodically, sometimes up to a few hours
apart. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near the surf zone,
with rip current strength increasing with surf size. Swimmers are
urged to exercise caution at all times and enter the water near a
lifeguard.
