Maui Surf Forecast
North: Surf heights are expected to be knee/chest high today, mainly around Hāna.
West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. At the best spots, few and far between, we could see some chest high sets.
South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. At the best exposures, few and far between, we could see some chest high sets.
Trade wind swell is forecast to keep moderate choppy surf along east facing shores.
A series of small southerly swells will bring small background surf for most south facing shores through the middle of the week. A small southwest is expected to fill in Tuesday into Wednesday before easing Thursday. August 5th a larger swell is expected.
Typhoon Noru has potential to bring us swell so we will keep an eye on the models over the next couple of days. A very small west-northwest pulse is possible for the weekend.
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.
