Trade wind driven rough seas will maintain high surf along the east coast for a few days. Although the swell decreases subtly to the east, these waves, coupled with easterly wind waves, will continue to warrant the ongoing High Surf Advisory (HSA) for the east facing coasts of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island. The widespread trades in the windy canals and bays remain strong to almost stormy until Tuesday. The HSA will be able to account for more than 8 feet of surfing height along most of the eastern exposures by Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.

The surf will remain below HSA criteria on all other banks for much of the week. The small, moderate northwest bumps on Sunday are declining today and on Tuesday. A larger, protracted swell in the northwest, arriving late Wednesday, will recently bring the surf on the north-west coastline back to a near advisory level on Thursday and Friday. These waves will continue to shift north and will decrease by next weekend. Surfing on the south-facing banks remains at or slightly above the winter average until Tuesday due to a combination of small south-south-west waves and trade wind waves and wave winding.
