Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be waist/shoulder high today out of the northwest. The best exposures could get head high on the sets in the morning. Trade swell spots will be in the waist/chest high zone.
West: Surf heights are expected to be knee high today or less.
South: Surf heights are expected to be knee high today or less.
Nothing significant is on the radar for southerly exposures at this time.
A new, modest, northwest swell is forecast for Thursday / Friday. Expected to peak Thursday night into Friday morning before slowly easing late Friday and into the weekend. We could see some other swells developing from some storms near Japan. Will keep an eye on it.
Over the weekend the trade swell is forecast to drop as winds weaken.
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.
