    Maui Surf Forecast

    North: Wave heights are expected to be head high to overhead today. The best breaks could get up to a couple feet overhead on the sets.

    West: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today. Spots catching the north wrap will be bigger.

    South: Wave heights are expected to be knee/thigh high today.

    Surf is expected to stay below the advisory level threshold for north shores as a new swell fills in into Thursday and peaks.

    A west-northwest swell is forecast to fill in over the weekend. Next Tuesday a larger swell is possible out of the northwest.

    A couple small south-southwest swells are bringing a little bump which will linger through Saturday or so.

    As trade winds fill back in, east shores are forecast to rise Friday into early next 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.
