Surf Forecast - Hawaii

5 Day Surf Forecast

Forecast Updated:
 
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 7:45 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').

Weak trades at 15 kts to be fading and all but gone by Thurs (8/28) with windswell producing potential fading then.  Swell from what was Super Typhoon Marie, with 140 kt winds (161 mph) on Sun (8/24) pushing northwest from a position just south of Cabo. It was a long ways away but was pushing directly up the great circle paths to the Big Island. A decent pulse of swell is possible at exposed breaks.

Outlook
Up some ---

A weak gale developed south of New Zealand on Sat-Sun (8/24) with 26 ft seas. Maybe small swell to result by Wed (8/27) with luck.  Otherwise a primer gale developed Tues-Wed (8/27) with 30 ft seas with a far stronger one forecast right behind in the Central South Pacific on Wed-Thurs (8/28) with 4 ft seas aimed decently northeast. And a weaker system is projected right behind on Sun-Mon (9/1) with 30 ft seas. Something to monitor.
