Surf Conditions
Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Hazards
No high surf advisory or warnings.
Forecast
Surf along south facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through Tuesday.
Surf along north facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Tuesday.
Surf along west facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Tuesday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Tuesday.
Outlook
Outlook through Monday May 27: A series of small southwest and south swells will produce small to moderate surf along south facing shores through the middle of the week. A larger long-period south-southwest swell is expected to arrive during the Memorial Day weekend, with surf possibly reaching advisory levels along south facing shores. A new small to moderate sized northwest swell is expected to arrive Friday and linger through much of the Memorial Day weekend. Surf along east facing shores should see an increase later in the week through the Memorial Day weekend as a fetch of breezy trades develops upstream of the islands.
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.
