Surf Zone Forecast for Hawaii
National Weather Service Honolulu HI
318 AM HST Wed Jul 28 2021

.DISCUSSION...
Moderate choppy surf along east facing shores will remain on the
small side through Thursday due to a surface ridge decreasing the
fetch length of the trades upstream of the islands. A slight
increasing trend in the trade wind swell and surf along all east
facing shores will develop from Friday into the weekend.

A mix of south and southeast swells will keep small surf heights
along exposed south shores into the first half of next week.

A small west-northwest swell, from tropical cyclone activity in
the NW Pacific, may produce a minor bump in surf heights along
some exposed north and west facing shores of Kauai and Oahu on
Thursday and Friday. Otherwise fairly flat conditions are forecast
into the first half of next week.

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.
