Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights shoulder high today with the best exposures getting up to overhead or a few feet overhead on the sets.
West: Spots that pick up wrap out of the north-northeast could get up to shoulder high or more. Otherwise, below waist high waves expected.
South: Surf heights expected around waist high today. The best exposures could get up to tummy / chest high on the sets. Spots blocked by the smaller islands will be smaller or even flat.
Our current north-northeast swell is expected to fade into the weekend. This swell is at advisory levels for north and east facing shores and it could possibly be extended. A moderate west-northwest and north-northeast are forecast to fill in around Tuesday/Wednesday of next week.
Our old south swell continues to fade.
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.
