Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be chest/head high today with slightly overhead waves on the sets at the best breaks. Swell will drop through the day.
West: Surf is pretty flat today. Spots that catch the northwest wrap will be bigger.
South: Surf is pretty flat today.
A series of northerly pulses are forecast for this week. Our current northwest is forecast to peak Tuesday before easing. A new northwest is forecast for Wednesday with a reinforcement also possible Friday.
Our current south-southwest will fade out Tuesday. 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.
