Maui Surf Forecast

North: Surf is overhead to double overhead for much of the day today. Showing best for Ho’okipa eastward. The best breaks could get up to double or triple overhead by sunset. Pe’ahi will see sets that could be bigger than that around sunset.

West: Surf is waist high to chest high from time to time at the best spots catching the wrap.

South: Surf is waist high to chest high from time to time at the best spots catching the wrap.

Our current elevated west-northwest swell starts to ease Friday but a reinforcement is right behind it. The new swell is expected to build Friday and peak in the evening, then hold into Saturday morning and ease late Saturday into Sunday. Another swell is expected on the 25th as well.

Saturday and Saturday night a High Surf Advisory is forecast for east facing shores.

A small southwest swell is forecast for the 22nd through the 24th.

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.
