343 PM HST Tue Apr 24 2018

Surf along north facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet tonight, lowering
to 2 to 4 feet Wednesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet tonight, lowering
to 2 feet or less Wednesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 4 to 7 feet through Wednesday.

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

Outlook through Tuesday May 1:
A moderate, long-period north-northwest swell is expected to arrive
Thursday and peak Friday, with surf heights remaining below advisory
levels. A larger north-northwest swell is possible this weekend and
early next week, with the potential for advisory-level surf along
north and west facing shores. Rough and choppy surf along east facing
shores will persist through Wednesday, then diminish Thursday and
Friday as trade winds weaken. Small swells from the south will persist
for most of the week, producing small surf along south facing 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.
