Maui Surf Forecast

West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today.

Our current southwest is easing. We have potential of another Tasman swell later this month.
Our current northerly swell is below advisory levels and is continuing to fade Monday with most spots flat along the north exposures. A couple of small swells are possible this week.
Short period trade swell is expected.
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.
