Maui Surf Forecast

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

North: Wave heights are expected to be head high to a couple feet overhead today. Ten foot faces are possible at the best exposures early in the day.

West: Wave heights are expected to be knee high or less today out of the south. Spots catching the northwest wrap will be bigger depending on the exposure to the swell.

South: Surf heights expected around knee high or less today.

Our current north-northwest is expected to fade over the weekend. A new swell is forecast to begin filling in Sunday and Sunday night. Near advisory level surf is expected Monday. Tuesday we could be at warning levels.

A northeast reinforcement is forecast for the weekend.

A small, long-period south swell is forecast to fill in Saturday and linger through Sunday morning.

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.
