West: Surf is waist/head high today along most westerly exposures with overhead sets from time to time.

South: Surf is waist/head high today along most westerly exposures with overhead sets from time to time. Some west-northwest is forecast to sneak into the Kihei area as well.

Our current south-southwest swell continues through Saturday. The west-northwest could wrap into some southwest exposures as well.

A large west-northwest swell is forecast filling in and peaking Friday at warning levels before slowly fading over the weekend.

Short period easterly swell could get up to advisory levels along east exposures by the end of the weekend and into early next 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.
