Maui Surf Report for Thursday 9/17
**Click directly on the images below to make them larger. Charts include: Maui County projected winds, tides, swell direction & period and expected wave heights.**
North: Wave heights are expected waist/chest high today for spots catching the trade swell. Many spots will remain pretty flat.
West: Wave heights knee/waist high are expected today. Spots shadowed by other islands will be smaller.
South: The south-southwest is expected to bring waist/chest high waves today. The best breaks could get bigger on the sets.
Our current fun south-southwest continues to trend down today. A reinforcing swell is likely to begin to build late Thursday but size isn’t expected to show until early Friday. Another reinforcement is expected to overlap this swell moving in Sunday and peaking Monday.
A small northwest is all but gone and there is nothing of note out of the NPAC.
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.
