Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be ankle/waist high or less today.
West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best breaks catching the swell could get up to tummy/chest high. Spots blocked from the swell will be flat.
South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best breaks catching the swell could get up to tummy/chest high. Spots blocked from the swell will be flat.
No significant swells are expected through the rest of this week. A series of minimal south swells is expected to keep wave heights near 2-4 foot faces along southern exposures. We could see a slightly bigger run of swell starting around the 19th of this month.
Small trade wind swells will continue to produce small choppy surf along east facing shores.
Models are showing a small long period east swell maybe reaching the state late Wednesday night into the weekend. Produced by distant tropical system “Eugene”… Will keep an eye on it.
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.
