Maui Surf Forecast

North: Wave heights are expected to be head high to overhead today out of the north-northeast. The sets could push up to double overhead on the sets.

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

West: Wave heights are expected to be knee/waist high today with sets getting up to chest high.

South: Surf heights expected around knee/waist high today. Sets could get up to chest high by sunset.

Our current west-northwest is expected to ease through the rest of the work week. Surf should stay below advisory levels from this swell energy.

A series of new north-northeast swells are filling in this week bringing on High Surf Advisory conditions for east shores. The current north-northeast is peaking today and easing through the rest of the week. Another swell is forecast for Sunday and again for the middle of next week. Warning level surf is possible. Will keep a close eye on it.

Small southerly swells will continue with small background swell for south facing shores. A small increase is possible over 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.
