Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are building through the day up to double to triple overhead by the end of the day.
West: Wrap from the northwest swell fills in today. Spots with northern exposure could get up to double overhead or more late in the day.
South: Wave heights are waist high or less today out of the south-southwest. Many spots will be flat.
Our current northwest swell will continue to gradually fade. Another large northwest swell is expected to quickly build Monday and the National Weather Service issued a High Surf Advisory for north and west facing shores of most islands. The swell is expected to hold Tuesday morning before fading.
Not much expected out of the SPAC the next few days. A possible small swell could fill in starting February 8th.
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.
