Maui Surf Forecast
North: Waist/head high or more surf is expected today. The best breaks could get a bit bigger on the sets.
West: Surf is knee/waist high today with the best exposures getting up to chest/shoulder high out of the south-southwest. Northwest Maui will catch some wrap at spots exposed to that direction.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today or more.
Overlapping northwest swells are expected through Thursday. A solid northwest is expected for December 2, building Thursday night.
New south-southwest swell expected to peak into Tuesday with waist to chest/shoulder high sets at the best breaks. Swell energy starts to fade Wednesday.
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.
