Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected about head high. At the best breaks we could see possible overhead sets.
West: Ankle/knee high surf is expected. Breaks catching the wrap could get up to head high or more 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.
Models are showing another northwest swell 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.
