Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be head high to overhead today with the best breaks getting a bit bigger than that but pretty sloppy.
West: Surf heights are expected to be ankle/waist high today with the best breaks catching some chest high sets.
South: Surf heights are expected to be ankle/waist high today with the best breaks catching some chest high sets.
Small overlapping south to south-southwest swells are expected to continue through the middle of the week with the energy fading Thursday/Friday. We expect something fun to build Friday for the weekend. Long range models are showing we may get a good swell toward the end of the month. Will keep an eye on it.
East trade swell continues at advisory levels. Modest northwest swell is forecast to build Wednesday night into Thursday morning, peak Thursday afternoon and fade from Friday into the weekend. Otherwise, nothing much expected out of the North Pacific.
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.
