Hawaii Surf Report

This surf report contains buoy data and images that depict the current state of the ocean and atmosphere within the Hawaiian swell window. Use this page to track storms, observe arriving swells, and determine winds and tides at your beach.

  • SRI = Links to the Scripps Research Institute (SRI) data server for 9 band Directional Spectra
  • CDIP = Links to the Coastal Data Information Program data server for Directional Spectra
  • NDBC = National Data Buoy Center - Primary Source for Wave and Wind Observations
  • Wave Met = Links to the NDBC FTP server which is often up when the prime web server is down.
    Two links provided: One to detailed 'Wave' data, the other to 'Meteorlogical' data (including Significant Sea heights). Heights are in meters, Time in GMT/UTC. Field descriptions can be found here: Wave Met
  • Spec Dens = Links to the National Data Buoy Center. Dispalys the amount of energy in each spectral band by period.
  • Buoy Forecast is from the Wavewatch III Wave Model courtesy of NOAA OMB.
    Tabular display tracks up to 6 swells as they converge on any buoy simultaneously. Identifies Significant Wave Height, Swell Height, Period and Direction hourly for the previous 12 hours and 72 hours into the future. Wherever possible, the Regional Model is used to increase accuracy. Heights are in meters, Period in seconds. Direction indicates where the swell is heading. Add or substract 180 degrees to calcuate where it came from.
