Surf Conditions
Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Hazards
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH AND WEST FACING SHORES
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will rise to 15 to 20 feet today, then lower to 10 to 14 feet Saturday.
Surf along west facing shores will rise to 8 to 12 feet today, then lower to 6 to 9 feet Saturday.
Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Saturday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet today, rising to 3 to 5 feet Saturday.
Outlook
Outlook through Friday November 23: Surf associated with the new northwest swell filling in today will shift out of the north and gradually lower over the weekend into Monday. A small to moderate northwest swell is expected to arrive on Monday, peak Monday night and early Tuesday, then lower gradually into Wednesday. Small background south swells are expected through the upcoming week, which will support small surf continuing along south facing shores each day. An uptick in short period choppy surf can be expected along east facing shores over the weekend and through the first half of next week as the trade winds increase.
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.
