Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be waist/chest high today. The best breaks could get up to shoulder high on the sets.
West: Surf is waist high today or less.
South: Surf is waist high today or less.
A little north-northwest pulse is sneaking in today and eases Thursday. 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.
