Maui Surf Forecast

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.
