Maui Surf Forecast
North: Double overhead surf is expected for the best spots today.
West: Wrap from a northwest swell will bring overhead to double overhead surf to West Maui spots that have northern exposure. Out of the southwest waist/shoulder high waves expected from Pali.
South: Wave heights are waist/shoulder high today out of the southwest thanks to Pali.
Our current northwest swell has begun a slow fading trend but will keep surf elevated through at least Tuesday.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist high or less.
Our current south-southwest lingers with wave heights topping out in the knee high range. Tropical system Pali is expected to bring an out of season boost to southern shores, peaking Monday morning and lingering through Tuesday.
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.
