Surf Forecast - Hawaii

5 Day Surf Forecast

Next forecast update will be on 7/26. We're taking a little summer break.

Forecast Updated:
 
Thursday, July 16, 2015 10:16 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').

East windswell holding associated with a fetch of east winds at 15 kts positioned east of Hawaii driven by high pressure north of Hawaii. Additional northeast fetch to develop at 20+ kts extending off California half way to Hawaii Fri-Sun (7/19) with more windswell possible. Minimal background swell from Tropical storm Enrique possibly intermixing Fri-Sat (7/18).

Outlook
Up some maybe ---

A series of spurious gales are forecast just under Tasmania, New Zealand, and in the Central Pacific on Thurs (7/16) with 32-34 ft seas perhaps setting up background swell a week out. And the models continue teasing concerning a storm forming east of New Zealand Sun-Tues (7/21) generating 50 kt south winds and 40 ft seas aimed almost due north. Something to monitor.
