    Maui Surf Forecast

    North: Surf heights are expected to be knee/shoulder high at the best breaks open to the swell.

    West: Surf heights are expected to be waist/head high today, some spots will be overhead on the sets.

    South: Surf heights are expected to be waist/head high today, some spots will be overhead on the sets.

    Our current south-southwest swell begins to ease Friday. Still, it will keep surf in the “fun” range through the weekend. Another couple swells are on the horizon around June 29 and July 3.

    Nothing much is expected out of the North Pacific at this time.

    Trade swell still affecting northeast exposures.

    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.
