Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today.
West: Surf is waist high today or less.
South: Surf is waist high today or less.
Mix of northwest swells are fading Monday through the middle of the week. Another round of northwest swell is forecast to build Thursday and peak Friday with occasional overhead sets. Some north-northwest energy is due in shortly thereafter for the weekend.
A modest trade swell will continue for north and east exposures.
Nothing significant is expected out of the SPAC with minimal leftovers expected this week.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
