Surf Zone Forecast for Oahu
Outlook
Outlook through Friday January 24: Surf along north facing shores will trend up over the weekend, then remain up through next week as a series of north to northwest swells move through. Heights may reach advisory levels beginning as early as Sunday along north and west facing shores. A more significant northwest swell is possible by midweek, which could lead to warning- level surf for north and west facing shores. Choppy surf will return along east facing shores by the end of the weekend as the trades fill back in. Surf will remain small along south facing shores with mainly background south-southwest swells 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.
