Maui Surf Forecast

North: Surf is chest/head high to overhead today. Showing best for Ho’okipa eastward. Trade swell continues up to chest/head high around Hana.

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

West: Surf is knee/waist high today. Spots catching some of the west-northwest wrap will be bigger.

South: Surf is knee/waist high today. The best spots catching the wrap could get bigger.

Only leftovers expected from our northwest swell. A large west-northwest is forecast to build Tuesday, peak late Tuesday and early Wednesday and fade after that. Another storm is forecast to generate swell for the weekend of the 28th. Will keep an eye on it.

Advisory level surf is forecast to continue for east facing shores today.

Our current small southwest swell continues Monday and Tuesday but it’s nothing to write home to mom about.

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.
