Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be head high to overhead today. Up to a few feet overhead at the best winter magnets.
West: Surf is knee/waist high today or less. Some wrap from the northwest will also increase wave heights for exposed breaks.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today or less.
Our current northwest swell is fading through the day today with some sneak sets still filtering in through the morning. A new shot of north-northwest swell starts to fill in late Friday and into the weekend. This swell is much smaller and more northerly than the last two.
A modest trade swell will continue for north and east exposures.
A small to moderate south swell associated with a recent batch of gales over the Tasman Sea is expected to hold through Friday night before easing.
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.
