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/thigh high today.
South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today.
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 south-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 / early next week.
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.
