    Maui Surf Forecast

    North: Head high to a few feet overhead surf is expected today. The best breaks could get up to double overhead on the sets.

    West: Surf is ankle/waist high today for most westerly exposures.

    South: Surf is expected to be pretty flat today for southern exposures.

    Our current north-northeast swell is holding steady into Thursday morning before beginning to fade. A solid mix of west-northwest and northwest swell will bump wave heights up again Friday and Saturday before slowly easing into early next week. Another swell is expected to build late Sunday into Monday as well.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.
