Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best breaks could be up to chest/shoulder high on the sets.
West: Surf is ankle/knee high today for the best breaks. Spots catching the west-northwest will be bigger.
South: Surf is ankle/knee high today.
Small south-southwest continues to fade. We may see some better swell near the end of the month around the 24th – 26th and during the last few days of the month.
Our current west-northwest swell is expected to continue fading. Shorter period north-northwest swell will bump up Friday and Saturday with unfavorable wind conditions. A larger west-northwest is lining up for the 19th through the 23rd, peaking Monday/Tuesday.
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.
