Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be waist/shoulder high to head high today and fading.
West: Surf is pretty flat today along most westerly exposures. Spots catching the west-northwest will be bigger.
South: Surf is pretty flat today along southern exposures.
Our current west-northwest is slowly easing. A reinforcement is expected late Tuesday / early Wednesday, peaking late Wednesday / early Thursday and easing Friday into the weekend.
Near the end of the month we could see an improvement in wave conditions for southern exposures.
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.
