Maui Surf Forecast
North: Many spots are expected to be head high to double overhead today depending on the amount of exposure the spot is getting.
West: Ankle/knee high surf is expected. Building north-northeast swell will get up to head high or more for exposed breaks.
South: Wave heights are waist high or less today.
Our current south-southwest bump is fading Thursday. A new small south-southwest swell is expected for Friday and into the weekend. Sunday this swell will begin a fading trend.
A short period north-northeast swell is expected to fill in Thursday and peak late Thursday and Friday. The period is forecast to become longer from Friday into Saturday and the swell will shift. This swell energy should continue 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.
