Maui Surf Forecast

North: Surf heights are expected to be waist high today. The best exposures could get up to tummy/chest high on the sets.

South: Surf heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today. Best breaks could be up to waist high on the sets.

Surf is forecast to remain below advisory levels with surf along south facing shores staying small through the end of the work week with just background southeast and southwest swells in the mix. Hawaii could see a swell out of the south-southeast late next week. Will keep an eye on it.

Our current small pulse from the northwest continues to gradually ease. A bit bigger northwest swell is forecast for next week Monday.

A slight rise is expected for surf along east facing shores into Friday as the trades strengthen slightly but as winds weaken the swell will again ease 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.
