As reported by the Examiner, tropical storm Carlos is fizzling out, which means Hawaii will likely not be hit by the storm, but the swell from it will.
We may see overhead south swell come late next week as a result. Lets keep our fingers crossed to keep this epic south summer rolling along.
In the meantime, there is still some decent shoulder-high swell to enjoy on the south shores, but you may need to be patient for them.
Tom Stokes of Hawaii Surf Session Report got some excellent video footage of the south swell. Enjoy!
The current south swell is holding strong, with a new swell arriving today, bringing the wave heights to the advisery level of 10′ faces. It looks like this swell will peak on Wed. with 10′++ waves.
Strong trades continue to blow from the east, so get out there early to get the more glassy conditions.
For those of you into extreme moonlight surfing, the full moon was last night and should still be shining bright tonight.
A big south swell has arrived along with the heat of the summer. Current conditions are glassy 4-7+ foot faces and 18 second periods. It doesn’t get much better than this on the south shore.
From the looks of the forecast, the swell will be sticking around for the next few days.
This morning I paddled out at Tongs (next to old man’s) and had a blast. The waves were doubleing up a bit as they normally do there, but looking up and down the shore a few of the nearby breaks were just beautiful.
Stay tuned for some pictures and more surf reports as the week goes on!
