Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist/chest high today.
West: Surf is waist high or less today.
South: Surf is waist high or less today.
Minimal south-southwest energy this week. A south swell builds Wednesday and peaks Thursday / Friday with knee to waist high waves at the best exposures.
Trade swell continues up to about chest high for exposed breaks.
Back to back pulses out of the North Pacific are possible this weekend and early next week. Will keep an eye on the developing situation.
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.
