Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be knee to possibly waist high.
West: Surf is flat today for west shores. Exposures catching the wrap could get up to knee/waist high from time to time.
South: Surf is ankle/knee high today with most spots smaller than that.
Nothing significant is expected until about June 9th or so when a couple of overlapping swells are forecast. In the meantime, just trace amounts of energy not amounting to much at all. Some forerunners could creep in Wednesday.
Quiet in the North Pacific at this time with nothing of note generating swell energy for the foreseeable future.
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.
