Maui Surf Forecast
North: Overhead to double overhead surf is expected for the best spots today.
West: Wrap from a northwest swell will bring waist high surf to West Maui spots that have northern exposure. Out of the southwest knee/waist/chest high waves expected from Pali.
South: Wave heights are knee/waist/chest 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 midweek. A new northwest swell is expected to move in Thursday maintaining wave heights around a few feet overhead at the best breaks.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist high or less.
Swell from tropical system Pali is expected to slowly continue fading through the week.
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.
