Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be waist/chest high today with shoulder/head high waves from time to time.

Modest north swell hangs around into Friday for Maui County with some possible better pulses next week. We might see a new swell around the 12th, still pending development.
Our current south-southwest will keep knee/thigh high waves at the best exposures through the weekend. A new swell could fill in out of the southwest around the 14th.
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.
