Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Hazards
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST FACING SHORES
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will be 7 to 10 feet tonight, lowering to 5 to 8 feet on Saturday.
Surf along west facing shores will be 5 to 7 feet tonight, lowering to 3 to 5 feet on Saturday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 6 to 8 feet tonight, lowering to 5 to 7 feet on Saturday.
Surf along south facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Saturday.
Outlook
Outlook through Friday December 22: A moderate northwest swell is expected to fill in Sunday and peak Sunday night. This swell should remain below advisory level. Another moderate north-northwest swell is forecast to arrive Tuesday, peak Tuesday night, then lower late on Wednesday. A larger north swell may impact the area beginning late Thursday. A small, long period south swell will arrive late Monday and continue through Tuesday, causing a slight bump in surf along south facing shores.
Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.
