A High Surf ADVISORY has been issued by the National Weather Service in Honolulu  for Maui’s north shore which will begin at Midnight on Friday, February 11 and will remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, February 14.

A large northwest swell is estimated to bring waves from 15 – 20 feet to the North Shore on Monday night, and then diminished waves at 12 – 16 feet on Tuesday .

A High Surf Advisory means that beach-goers are urged to stay out of the water and away from the shore to avoid being compromised by  rip currents and large waves breaking close to shore.
