Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are waist/head high today for the best exposed shores in the morning. Swell is on a downward trend through the day.
West: Just small wrap from a northwest swell today.
South: Wave heights are knee/waist/chest high today out of the south-southwest. Fading northwest wrap will filter into some spots.
Our current northwest swell is expected to taper off and drop to leftovers by Sunday. A second large west-northwest swell is forecast to build Sunday through Monday, resulting in warning-level surf along north and west facing shores, including west facing shores of the Big Island.
Trade swell is expected to remain pretty small at waist/chest high or less.
A new south-southwest is due to fill in Saturday around knee / chest high.
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.
