Maui County Surf Forecast
North: Traces of new NW swell creeping in over the afternoon, possibly getting up to knee-waist high for select spots before dark. Meanwhile, very small ENE tradeswell provides waves around waist high or less for the better east exposed spots of the island.
West & South: Easing SSW swell. The better exposed spots of the island continue to see waist-chest high sets throughout the day, while standouts still produce occasional shoulder high waves.
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.
