Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be double overhead today with the best outer reef breaks getting bigger than that (in the morning, swell is 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 swell is forecast to slowly fade over the next few days. The same storm is expected to bring more swell for the middle of the week as well with another solid west-northwest for the end of the week as well.
Small south-southwest swell continues. New south-southwest fills in later this week.
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.
