**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 thigh/tummy high today.
West: Wave heights waist/tummy high are expected today. Spots shadowed by other islands will be smaller.
South: The south-southwest is expected to bring waist/shoulder high waves today. The best breaks could be a bit bigger on the sets.
Our current south-southwest swell is expected to continue through Tuesday before an easing trend takes hold Wednesday. New swell out of the southern hemisphere is expected Thursday.
Tropical swell is possible for the second half of this week. Will keep an eye on it.
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.
