Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to wash out most exposed spots this morning. The best deep water breaks could get up to 20 to 25 foot faces. Pe’ahi “Jaws” could get up to 35 foot faces or more early in the day.
West: Ankle/knee high surf is expected. Breaks catching the wrap could get up to triple overhead or more.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today with best breaks possibly getting up to shoulder high.
A small long period south-southwest is expected to fill in further and peak Wednesday up to about shoulder high. Nothing promising out of the SPAC anytime soon.
Wednesday a large northwest swell is forecast peak for the best deep water outer reef breaks around 35 foot faces or perhaps more. The swell will slowly trend down Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. Models are showing another northwest swell around April 6th and again on the 8th. Will keep an eye on the progress.
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.
