Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be about waist/shoulder high today but messy.
West: Surf is pretty flat today for west shores without exposure to the swells. Exposures catching the swell will get up to knee/waist high or so.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today. The best breaks could get up to chest high on the sets.
Small southerly swell is still showing. A southwest is filling in and holding through the work week. We may get a fun swell for next week. Will keep an eye on it.
Storm activity isn’t expected and therefore there are no notable swells on the horizon out of the NPAC. Trade swell will show for northeastern exposures up to about shoulder high.
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.
