Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Hazards
No high surf advisory or warnings.
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will be 5 to 7 feet tonight, lowering to 4 to 6 feet Friday.
Surf along west facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet tonight, lowering to 2 to 4 feet Friday.
Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Friday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through Friday.
Outlook
Outlook through Thursday October 24: The current northwest and north swells will peak tonight and steadily lower through the weekend. A small reinforcing north-northwest swell should produce small surf through the weekend. Surf along east facing will remain rough and choppy through the weekend due to breezy trades. South shores should see a small south swell fill in and peak over the weekend. No other significant swells expected through the first half of next week.
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.
