Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be about thigh/waist high today. The best breaks could get up to chest high on the sets.
West: Surf is pretty flat today for west shores without exposure to the swells. Exposures catching the swell will get up to waist high or so.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today.
Our northwest pulse is on the way down today. Storm activity isn’t expected and therefore there are no notable swells on the horizon.
Our current southerly mix is below waist high. Some long period southerly forerunners could filter in late on Monday. A better southwest is forecast from midweek through Friday. We may get a decent swell for next week. Will keep an eye on it.
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.
