Chest High Surf on Maui as Swell Subsides
The above average north-northwest swell should be back down to average levels today, gradually fading through midweek.
Today heights are expected to be chest high to overhead or higher at spots best exposed to the swell.
A moderate north-northwest swell (320 – 360°) is expected to start building through the day on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014.
Some northwest swells from ANA are also possible late in the week.
The swell generated by ANA continues to drop and a small SSW (200 – 190°) swell is expected to build in today offering heights in the knee to waist high range.
Gales well southeast of New Zealand could also bring surf by the middle of next week.
Surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Keep in mind, heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
