Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf is shoulder/head high today with the best breaks getting a bit overhead on the sets.
West: Surf is pretty ankle/waist high today for most westerly exposures with bigger waves at the best exposures catching the northwest wrap.
South: Surf is expected to be pretty flat today for southern exposures.
Our current south-southwest swell is expected to linger Monday. A fun bump is on the horizon for the 3rd and 4th, then slowly fading through the rest of the work week.
Our current mix of northeast and northwest swells will affect northwest exposures of Maui County today. This swell should drop a bit on Tuesday. A west-northwest is forecast to filter in Wednesday and peak in the afternoon and evening. The swell should hold into Thursday morning before slowly fading.
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.
