Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Hazards
HIGH SURF WARNING FOR EAST FACING SHORES
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH FACING SHORES
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will be 12 to 16 feet this morning, lowering to 8 to 12 feet this afternoon, lowering to 6 to 10 feet tonight, then rising to 10 to 14 feet Monday.
Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 3 feet this morning, rising to 3 to 5 feet this afternoon, rising to 4 to 7 feet tonight, then rising to 6 to 9 feet Monday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 12 to 16 feet this morning, lowering to 8 to 12 feet this afternoon, lowering to 5 to 8 feet tonight, then lowering to 3 to 5 feet Monday.
Surf along south facing shores will be 2 feet or less through Monday.
Outlook
Outlook through Sunday December 15: The current north-northeast swell will gradually lower today through Monday. A new northwest swell is expected to arrive later today, then gradually build tonight and Monday. Advisory level surf will likely affect north and west facing shores late Monday through mid week, before a much larger northwest swell arrives. This larger northwest swell is expected to arrive Wednesday, likely pushing surf to warning levels along north and west facing shores during the day Wednesday and holding at warning levels through Thursday and possibly into Friday. This swell is expected to lower Friday and Friday night, with yet another large, possibly advisory level, northwest swell arriving over the weekend. No other significant swells are expected.
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.
