Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be overhead/double overhead today, occasionally a bit bigger at the best breaks and exposures but fading through the day.
West: Surf is pretty flat today for west shores that aren’t catching the northwest. Breaks catching the wrap are expected to be up to overhead or more.
South: Surf is waist high or less today.
Our current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade through the weekend.
Not much expected out of the SPAC anytime soon. Minimal southerly swell is expected to trickle in over the next few days. Swell is possible around April 21st or so.
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.
