Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Hazards
HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST FACING SHORES
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet tonight, increasing to 10 to 14 feet Friday.
Surf along west facing shores will be 2 to 4 feet through Friday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 4 to 6 feet tonight, increasing to 6 to 9 feet Friday.
Surf along south facing shores will be 1 to 3 feet through Friday.
Outlook
Outlook through Thursday December 12: A building north swell tonight and Friday will be reinforced and boosted by a north-northeast swell over the weekend. During the peak Friday night through Saturday night, advisory level surf is expected along north facing shores, with warning levels possible along east facing shores. Back to back northwest swells are expected Sunday night into the first half of next week, producing surf near advisory levels.
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.
