* Timing... east swell building tonight and peaking Wednesday
afternoon. North-northeast swell diminishing tonight. Elevated
surf will persist through at least the weekend.

* Impacts... very high... expect ocean water surging and sweeping
across beaches... coastal benches... and lava flows creating the
potential for impacts to coastal properties and

rip currents will be present at most beaches. Large breaking
waves and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances and
channels causing challenging boat handling.
