Maui Surf Forecast

West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high or less today. Many spots will be flat.

South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high or less today. Many spots will be flat.

Our current south-southwest is slowly fading out. South-southeast swell is forecast to gradually fill in Thursday and into the weekend… but still pretty small. Nothing significant is forecast out of the South Pacific at this time.

Trade swell is forecast to drop a bit through the weekend as trade winds weaken. Early next week they could bump back up to knee/waist/chest high as the winds pick back up.

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.
