    Maui Surf Forecast

    North: Double overhead to shoulder to overhead surf is expected today.

    West: Surf is knee/waist high today for most westerly exposures with slightly bigger waves at the best exposures.

    South: Surf is expected to be ankle/waist high today for southern exposures. Spots catching the wrap may get a bit bigger.

    A moderate northwest swell peaked overnight and will ease Monday. We expect a swell from the NNW, arriving late Monday, peaking Tuesday night and Wednesday, with highest surf near advisory levels along exposed N (and some W) facing shores. This swell should ease through next weekend.

    A trade wind swell will be building in the next couple of days. Surf, however, is expected to stay below advisory level until maybe late in the upcoming weekend.

    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.
