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, fading Sunday through the first half of next week. The west-northwest could wrap into some southwest exposures as well.

Our current large west-northwest swell has peaked at warning levels and will slowly fade Saturday and into early next week.

A series of northwest swells are possible next week with only small south-southwest pulses forecast.

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.
