Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are overhead to double overhead with the best spots topping out around 12 foot faces or more. Fading trend by the evening.
West: Wrap from the west-northwest swell affecting some western shores today. Spots with the exposure could get up to overhead to double overhead or more on the sets.
South: Wave heights are knee/thigh high today out of the south-southwest.
Our current west-northwest swell is bringing advisory level surf to the west side of the Big Island. The swell shifts direction and begins to fade Tuesday.
Another fun size west-northwest is possible next weekend.
Not much expected from the SPAC. Just background southern hemi surf expected.
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.
