Maui Surf Forecast
North: Most “normal” breaks will be completely closing out, especially early in the day. Wave heights in the 18 to 25 foot face range are expected with occasionally bigger waves on the sets.
West: Surf is ankle/knee high today. Spots catching the wrap will be bigger.
South: Surf is ankle/knee high today.
Our current north-northwest swell reaches its peak late Thursday and early Friday, then fades into the weekend. Another XL swell is expected for Monday the 14th with a smaller one for the 16th and possibly a better one for the 18th.
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.
