Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be a chest high 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 chest high at the best exposures.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today, with chest high waves at the best breaks on the sets.
Northwest swell down to leftovers. Another northwest pulse is possible for the weekend, building Saturday and easing Sunday. Another pulse is possible around May 3rd.
Our current south-southwest lingers into Monday. Another small south-southwest is expected mid week up to waist high. A fun swell is possible for April 30th.
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.
