High surf advisory issued for east shores

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:34 a.m. HST, Jan 12, 2014

The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for east shores of Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island.

The advisory was in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday as waves of 5 to 8 feet, generated by strong winds, come ashore.

Beachgoers should expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and rip currents to make swimming difficult and dangerous, forecasters said.

"Beachgoers, swimmers and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution," the National Weather Service said.

Hooray for east swells! Not too often do the islands get quality east swell surf. Got to go now. Secret spot in Puna. Won't see you there.
