Surf Zone Forecast for Hawaii
National Weather Service Honolulu HI
1000 AM HST Sun Feb 28 2021

.DISCUSSION...Strong high pressure slowly passing far north of the
state will maintain large and rough seas for the next few days.
Surf along east facing showers will remain well above the advisory
threshold into Tuesday, then drop down to border line advisory
levels from Wednesday into next weekend as winds and seas ease.

A combination of a northwest swell and wrapping trade wind swell
will produce moderate north shore surf today, followed by a
decline Monday into Wednesday. Another northwest swell will arrive
late Wednesday and cause north shore surf to peak near the
advisory level Friday. This swell will decline and shift out of
the north next weekend. Surf along south facing shores remains
above winter average due to a combination of south-southwest swell
and wrapping trade wind swell. The south swell will decline on
Monday then fade by Tuesday.

Surf:        Height of the surf from trough to crest (face value)
             in feet.

Tides:       Heights displayed are relative to the Mean Lower Low
             Water (MLLW) datum in feet.

Surf heights can vary significantly from beach to beach along a
coastline. Surf larger than the upper end of the range provided in
the forecast will occur periodically, sometimes up to a few hours
apart. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near the surf zone,
with rip current strength increasing with surf size. Swimmers are
urged to exercise caution at all times and enter the water near a
lifeguard.
