**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: The best breaks could get up to overhead/double overhead today. On the sets triple overhead waves are possible at the best exposures.
West: Wave heights are waist high or more today out of the south-southwest. Some wrap from the WNW/NW swell.
South: Wave heights are knee/waist high today out of the south-southwest. Trade swell will be on the way down today.
Trade swell is expected to level off and hold through the weekend.
Our current south-southwest brings small but rideable waves through the weekend.
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.
