Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf is waist/head high with the good exposures getting up to overhead on the sets.
West: Surf is pretty ankle/knee high today for most westerly exposures.
South: Surf is pretty ankle/knee high today for most spots.
North-northeast swell keeps wave heights elevated for those exposures but slowly easing through the day. Slightly longer pulse of north-northeast expected to build Tuesday, peak Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Another small south-southwest swell is expected to build on the 10th for the 11th through the 13th. No significant swells forecast after that time.
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.
