Long term energy from an incoming north-northwest swell has reached the northwest offshore buoys as well as the nearshore buoy off Hanalei, Kauai. This new swell will build up the surf over the northwest exposed reefs and coasts up to twice as high by Saturday. The north and west coast surf should peak below the High Surf Advisory thresholds today and Saturday. That first northwest swell of the young fall season will subside late Saturday through Sunday. The next noteworthy smaller west-northwest swell will come from the tropical cyclone Mindulle in the western Pacific and arrive next weekend.

The south-facing bank surf will hold its last level for the next few days as the small, south-westerly south swell energy in the background continues for most of the next week.

Short-term wind waves generated by fresh trade winds will primarily support small, choppy surf along much of the east-facing coastline.
