Maui Surf Forecast
North: Many spots are expected to be waist/chest high today depending on the amount of exposure the spot is getting. The best breaks could get up to shoulder/head high.
West: Ankle/knee high surf is expected. Wrap out of the northwest could bring wave heights up to shoulder high for exposed breaks.
South: Wave heights are knee/waist high today.
A very small south-southwest is expected to fill in Tuesday and Wednesday. Nothing much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon.
Our current mix of northerly swells will continue to fade today. A small west-northwest swell is expected Wednesday and Thursday before fading Friday. A small north-northwest is possible for Friday into 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.
