screen-shot-2016-11-03-at-9-03-54-pmOur current north-northwest swell is easing a bit Friday but another north-northwest is building. This will maintain wave heights at the better breaks of North Maui. The swell will ease Sunday and into early next week. Another couple swells are expected for next week, will keep an eye on it.

Nothing significant is expected out of the SPAC for the foreseeable future.

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.
