Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected waist high or less. At the best breaks we could see possible chest high sets around sunset.
West: Ankle high surf is expected. Breaks catching the wrap could get up to waist high. By sunset spots with the best exposure could get up to chest high on the sets.
South: Surf is pretty flat today.
Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Maybe some rideable waves around April 9th.
Our current northwest swell is down to leftovers today. Models are showing another northwest swell moving in late Tuesday, peaking Wednesday and holding steady through Thursday and Friday as it shifts more north-northwest. Another swell is possible around April 10th.
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.
