Let’s talk surf! A moderate northwest swell is slated to hold through Thursday. A large north-northwest swell comes in Friday, peak Saturday.

A high surf warning is very likely for the north- and west-facing shores of most islands. For the other shores, the east-facing shores will see surf trending down as the trade winds weaken.

Surf along south-facing shores will remain flat through the forecast period.
