Maui Surf Forecast
North: Well overhead surf is expected today. Some northern exposures could get up to double overhead with the best breaks reaching up to 15 foot faces occasionally.
West: Wrap from the northwest swell affecting some western shores today. Spots along the western coast will vary greatly in size based on the amount of exposure. Most spots will be pretty flat.
South: Wave heights are waist high or less today.
Old and fading northwest swell mixes with new northwest. A new northwest swell is expected to build Monday evening into Tuesday with another round on tap for the weekend.
A fun size bump could fill in around March 7 – 9 for southern exposures. Chest to head high sets are possible with this swell.
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.
