    Maui Surf Forecast

    North: Surf heights are expected to be chest/head high today with the best breaks getting up to overhead on the sets.

    West: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best spots could get up to chest high on the sets. Spots blocked by our smaller islands will be smaller.

    South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/waist high today. The best spots could get up to chest high on the sets.

    A small southerly swell is forecast to fill in Wednesday. This swell should hold through Thursday and begin fading Friday but keep some fun little waves going through the weekend. Meanwhile, another stronger storm with a wider fetch is forecast for the weekend with wave heights possibly up to waist/chest high.

    Our current northerly swell is below advisory levels but a couple feet higher than models originally projected. This swell is holding through Thursday before fading Friday.

    Small along east shores because of the light winds but picking up as we get into the weekend and trade winds build back in.

    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.
