Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be a few feet overhead in the morning and fading through the day.
West: Surf is ankle/knee high today for west shores that aren’t catching the northwest. Breaks catching the wrap are expected to be up to slightly overhead at the best exposures.
South: Surf is waist/chest high today, with shoulder high waves at the best breaks on the sets.
Our current northwest swell is expected to slowly fade over the weekend. A possible swell could move in Wednesday the 27th and another on the 29th. Will keep an eye on it.
Our current south-southwest should hold steady through Saturday morning before beginning to fade. Another smaller south-southwest is expected for the weekend but not expected to increase wave heights over what the fading swell will already be providing.
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.
