Surf Forecast - Hawaii

5 Day Surf Forecast

Forecast Updated:
 
Thursday, April 23, 2015 8:02 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').

A tiny gale pushed off Kamchatka on Wed-Thurs (4/23) with 22 ft seas dissipating before reaching the dateline. Sideband energy possible for the Islands and a long ways away. Maybe small swell to result. A local fetch of 30-35 kt northeast winds to develop 600 nmiles north of Hawaii on Sun (4/26) possibly setting up windswell by Monday.  Nothing else to follow. The season is over.

Outlook
Up some maybe ---

A small gale developed off the east coast of New Zealand on Tues (4/14) push up to 32 ft seas northward. Small swell has peaked and is to slowly fade through the workweek. More small swell of indeterminate source to follow. The models continue to suggest a broader storm to follow tracking from the Southwest Pacific Sat (4/25) east with seas to 46 ft aimed east-northeast. Sideband swell possible for the Islands but the focus really is on Chile. Something to monitor. The models suggest a small gale building under New Zealand a week out (5/1) with 38 ft seas aimed well at the Islands.
