309 PM HST Mon Apr 23 2018

Surf along north facing shores will be 6 to 9 feet through tonight,
lowering to 4 to 7 feet Tuesday.

Surf along west facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet through tonight,
lowering to 3 to 5 feet Tuesday.

Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet through tonight,
rising to 4 to 6 feet Tuesday.

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

Outlook through Monday April 30:
The current, moderate northwest swell will decline Tuesday and
Wednesday, followed by a similarly sized northwest swell that will
build on Thursday and peak on Friday and Saturday. A potentially
large, shorter period north-northwest swell may arrive later in the
weekend. Moderate, rough surf will continue along east facing shores
during the next few days, followed by a decline late Thursday into the
weekend. An inconsistent southwest swell is expected to maintain south
shore surf around background summer levels through Wednesday. Another
moderate south-southwest swell is due this weekend.

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.
