Maui Surf Forecast
North: Many spots are expected to run chest/overhead in the morning. Some spots may even get up to a couple feet overhead.
West: Wrap from the west-northwest swell affecting some western shores today. Spots along the western coast will vary greatly in size based on the amount of exposure. Knee/shoulder high for shores with less exposure to the swell. Chest/overhead to maybe a couple feet overhead for spots that get the exposure.
South: Wave heights are chest/head high today with the best breaks reaching overhead on the sets.
Our current west-northwest swell is expected to continue fading into Tuesday. A smaller northwest swell is expected to fill in mid week before easing Friday and into the weekend.
An early season bump is filling in expected to peak Tuesday before fading for southern exposures Wednesday through Friday. Another swell is on its heels for next 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.
