Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be overhead to double overhead today or more. The best breaks could get up to triple overhead late in the day.
West: Surf is pretty small today for west shores that aren’t catching the northwest. Breaks catching the wrap are expected to be up to double overhead or more at the best exposures.
South: Surf is waist high or less today.
Our current northwest swell is expected to continue building today, peaking Wednesday afternoon/evening. The swell is expected to slowly fade Thursday and Friday.
Minimal southerly swells will trickle in through today. The next swell is expected to build in Thursday and peak Friday.
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.
