Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected head high to slightly overhead. The best breaks could get up to a few feet overhead early in the day.
West: Ankle/knee high surf is expected. Breaks catching the wrap could get up to head high or more.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today or less.
Our current long period south-southwest swell is expected to continue trending down. Sunday into Monday a small southwest swell is expected to filter in with occasional rideable waves for the best exposures. Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon.
Our current large northwest swell will continue to slowly fade Friday. A small short period north swell is filtering in on Sunday. Models are also showing another northwest swell around April 6th. 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.
