Elevated surf continues to affect the north facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi today following advisory conditions over the weekend from Hurricane Ana.

The National Weather Service extended a high surf advisory for the North facing shores of both islands through noon on Monday, Oct. 20, saying surf is expected to be in the 10 to 15 foot range along affected shorelines.

An above average north-northwest swell is expected to peak this afternoon with 10 to 15 foot faces. The swell should gradually fade through midweek.


Beach goers should expect breaking waves, shore break conditions and strong long shore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous today.


The swell generated by ANA continues to drop and a small SSW is expected to build in for Tuesday, Oct. 21, offering heights in the knee to waist high range. For now, beach goers can expect just “ankle slappers.”
