Maui Surf Forecast

North: Wave heights are expected to be chest/head high today. By sunset, head high to overhead waves are forecast for the best exposures.

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

West: Wave heights are expected to be around knee/waist high 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/waist high today.

Our new north-northwest swell is filling in and building through the work week. Near advisory level surf is expected Monday. Tuesday we could be at warning levels as it becomes reinforced from the north-northwest.

The combo of north swell, north winds, high tides and beach erosion could lead to coastal flooding. Keep that in mind as you plan your day.

A northeast reinforcement is forecast to keep wave heights elevated through the first part of the work week.

A small south swell is forecast to fill in midweek.

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.
