Maui Surf Forecast
North: Head high to overhead surf is expected today and dropping through the day.
West: Surf is pretty flat today for most westerly exposures. Northwest Maui will catch some wrap at spots exposed to that direction.
South: Surf is expected to be pretty flat today for southern exposures.
A new northwest swell will peak Tuesday morning and slowly lower after that. A northeast swell is also expected to build late Tuesday and peak midday on Wednesday. This swell energy will start to ease Thursday into Friday.
A solid northwest swell will bump wave heights up again on the 16th.
Nothing significant is expected out of the SPAC in the near 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.
