Surf Forecast - Hawaii

5 Day Surf Forecast

Forecast Updated:
 
Tuesday, July 29, 2014 8:49 PM

Surf Scale: 3 ft = waist high, 4 ft = chest high, 5 ft = head high, 10 ft =double overhead
Swell Direction is direction swell is coming from. 90°=East, 180°=South, 270°=West, 360-0 = North

NOTE: Forecast does NOT account for enhancing bathymetry (i.e the 'reef effect') common at best breaks. For top spots with swell period 14 +secs, multiply surf size X 1.25-1.5 with peaks X 2 (or consider the stated size 'Hawaiian Scale').

Outlook
Holding ---

A series of weak tropical low pressure systems are to be tracking south of the Islands while high pressure holds to the north generating a pressure gradient and enhancing trades from the east at 15+ kts, resulting in local easterly windswell at exposed breaks. Otherwise no legitimate swell producing fetch has occurred in the North Pacific and none is forecast over the next 7 days.

Outlook
Up some ---

Down south a small gale developed south of the New Zealand on Tues-Wed (7/23) with seas 28-30 ft on the western edge of the Hawaiian swell window. Swell arrival on Thurs (7/31). A rather weak gale is tracking and forecast to continue pushing east from New Zealand Sun-Thurs (7/31) producing a small area of 26-28 ft seas. Maybe some small swell to result next week. A stronger system is to fall southeast from New Zealand on Thurs (7/31) with 55 kt winds and 42 ft seas, but all swell is likely to impact only Antarctica.
