Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are head high to overhead today maybe up to double overhead for the best exposed shores in the morning. Swell is on a downward trend through the day.
West: Wrap from a northwest swell continues.
South: Wave heights are knee/waist high today as the southwest swell fades. Northwest wrap will filter into some spots.
Our current northwest swell is expected to taper off and shift more out of the north today. A second large west-northwest swell is likely Sunday through Monday, resulting in warning-level surf along north and west facing shores, including west facing shores of the Big Island.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist high or less.
Our current south-southwest swell is expected to begin fading Friday. A new south-southwest is due to fill in Saturday around knee / chest high.
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.
