Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be around knee/waist/chest high for spots catching the ENE trade swell.
West: Surf hangs mainly around waist high or less today out of the southwest. Spots from Kihei to around Olowalu/Lahaina will be smaller or even flat due to shadowing from the other islands.
South: Select summer magnets pull in inconsistent waves up to belly-chest high.
Expect breezy NE-NNE winds to rise up for the day through the Central Valley and Ma’alaea Bay. East trades for southernmost Maui as well.
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.
