Maui Surf Forecast

South: Surf is knee/waist high today.

A moderate swell is expected for Friday the 13th. This swell should peak Friday night and hold through Saturday morning before fading Saturday afternoon and into Sunday. No significant swells on the horizon out of the NPAC further out.

Southerly exposures will be waist high or less today. Middle of next week we could a moderate swell. Will keep an eye on it.

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.
