**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 knee/waist high today in the morning. The best breaks could get sets up to head high or overhead on the sets by the end of the day.
West: Wave heights waist/shoulder high are expected today with top breaks reaching head high on the sets. Spots shadowed by other islands will be smaller but west Maui shorelines exposed to the north-northwest are expected to build to chest/head high by sundown.
South: The south-southwest is expected to bring waist/shoulder high waves today. The best breaks could get up to head high or more on the sets.
Long period south and west swells will persist through the weekend.
East shores should remain small as light to moderate trade winds prevail. No small craft advisories are expected through the forecast period.
Nora may bring some east-southeast swell to the islands as early at Tuesday. Will keep an eye on this and see how it develops.
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.
