DISCUSSION
 
 
SATELLITE-DERIVED WINDS STILL VERIFY A LARGE BELT OF STRONG TRADES  
FOCUSED IN THE VICINITY AND UPSTREAM OF THE STATE. THIS VERY LONG  
FETCH OF ROBUST TRADES WILL SUPPORT TURBULENT, FULLY-DEVELOPED  
ROUGH SEAS AND GENERATE HIGH SURF ALONG MOST EAST-FACING  
SHORELINES. SOME OF THIS TRADE WIND WAVE AND SWELL ENERGY WILL  
WRAP AROUND INTO ADJACENT NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN EXPOSURES. THE  
HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY FOR THE EAST-  
FACING SHORELINES OF KAUAI, OAHU, MOLOKAI, MAUI AND THE BIG  
ISLAND. SMALL TO MODERATE NORTHWEST SWELLS WILL FILL IN AND PEAK  
SURF FROM HEAD HIGH TO A COUPLE OF FEET ABOVE HEAD HIGH SUNDAY.  
THE NEXT NORTHWEST SWELLS WILL BE A COUPLE OF FEET HIGHER THAN  
THIS WEEKEND'S SWELL AND LIKELY PUSH SURF TO NEAR ADVISORY LEVEL  
THRESHOLDS ALONG NORTHERN AND WESTERN-EXPOSED SHORES THURSDAY.  
SMALL SOUTHERN HEMISPHERIC BACKGROUND SWELLS, ALONG WITH TRADE  
WIND WAVE AND SWELL WRAP, WILL KEEP FUN CATEGORY SMALL SOUTH-  
FACING SHORE SURF ALIVE THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
