    Maui Surf Forecast


    North: Surf heights chest/head high to overhead from time to time and easing through the day.

    West: Surf is pretty flat today. Spots catching the west-northwest wrap will be bigger.

    South: Surf is pretty flat today.

    Our current west-northwest swell continues to ease through the weekend. A small northwest pulse could fill in Sunday and early next week. The second half of next week we expect some stronger pulses of surf energy.

    Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific.

    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.
