The National Weather Service in Honolulu has extended the high surf advisory for east facing shores of Hawaii Island until noon Thursday (Aug 6).

Surf along east facing shores is forecast to be in the five to eight foot range this evening increasing to eight to 12 feet with higher sets tonight with surf declining Wednesday afternoon.

Coastal areas can expect strong breaking waves, shore breaks and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous.

Beachgoers, swimmers and surfers should heed the advice given by ocean safety officials and be careful. Know your limits and when in doubt, don’t go out.

Boaters should expect recreational surfers and bodyboarders using harbor channels to access surfing areas.
