Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights of head high to a few feet overhead are expected today at the standout spots in the afternoon.
West: Surf is basically flat today. Spots catching the wrap will be a bit bigger.
South: Surf is basically flat today.
Our current northwest swell is fading out over the next few days. A reinforcement swell is expected for Wednesday and will fade over Thursday and Friday. Thursday night into Friday morning another good sized swell out of the north-northwest is expected to build and peak late Friday.
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.
