Forecast through next Monday
A moderate northwest swell will gradually lower through Wednesday. As a result, north shore surf will top out above May average, then decline into Tuesday…before going nearly flat Thursday through the  weekend. South shore surf will hover around May average. The south swell producing this surf will drop slightly Tuesday, with another small pulse possible Wednesday. With steady moderate to fresh trade winds holding east of the islands, east shore surf will remain at or slightly below May average through the week.
