**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 shoulder high today. The best breaks could get sets up to overhead on the sets.
West: Wave heights thigh/waist high are expected today. Spots shadowed by other islands will be smaller. Northerly exposures get up to waist/chest/shoulder high.
South: The south-southwest is expected to bring knee/waist high waves today.
Nora is forecast to bring advisory level east-southeast swell to the Big Island through Thursday but Maui County will be heavily shadowed from any swell generated from this tropical system.
Our current south-southwest swell is expected to continue fading as a new small south-southwest fills in.
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.
