Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be head high today with the best breaks getting a few feet overhead. Some spots could get up to double overhead.
West: Surf is knee/waist high today along most westerly exposures with tummy/chest high sets. Spots catching the west-northwest will be bigger.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today along most westerly exposures with tummy/chest high sets.
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.
Modest south-southwest swell Tuesday and Wednesday. 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.
