Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights of head high to a few feet overhead are expected today at the standout spots in the morning and fading.
West: Surf is basically flat today. Northwest Maui will be a bit bigger but not as big as direct exposures.
South: Surf is basically flat today.
Our current northwest swell is fading out over the next few days. Thursday night into Friday morning another good sized swell out of the north-northwest is expected to build and peak late Friday before fading out over the weekend. A north-northeast is forecast for the 20th to the 22nd.
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.
