    Maui County Surf Forecast

    North: Surf heights are expected around the waist high range or less across the better northerly exposures, mostly less. Meanwhile, ENE tradeswell provides waves around knee-waist-chest high for the better east exposed spots of the island.

    West: New small SSW-South swell moves in with surf heights around waist high or less across the better Southern Hemi exposures.

    South: Select summer magnets pull in inconsistent waves up to belly-chest high for today. Much of SW Maui will be smaller or flat, especially Makena area through Olowalu.

    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.
