Surfing along the north coast will stay small until Tuesday. A new short-term north-northwest swell will then give the north coast a boost mid-week, with a slow decline expected from Friday through the weekend. On north coasts, head-high to slightly above head-sets can be expected as this swell is at its peak, but the surf will stay well below recommended thresholds.

The surf on the east coast will remain low for the next 7 days, although we should see a slow uptrend on Thursday through the weekend as trades over and upstream of the islands get stronger.

Surfing along the south-facing banks will remain low for the next 7 days, with mostly background swell energy flowing through from the south and south-southwest.
