Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are double to triple overhead with the best spots up to 20 foot faces or more.
West: Wrap from the northwest swell affects some western shores today. Spots with northern exposure could get up to double overhead or more.
South: Wave heights are waist high or less today out of the south-southwest. Many spots will be flat.
The northwest reinforcement is expected to slowly begin fading Wednesday afternoon and evening. Only small leftovers by Thursday. Another swell is expected to fill in Sunday.
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.
