Maui Surf Forecast
North: Wave heights are expected to be around waist/head high for spots catching the trade swell. The best breaks (mainly around Hana) could see slightly overhead waves on the sets.
West: Surf is ankle/knee high today with breaks blocked by other islands possibly even flat.
South: Surf is knee/waist high today.
Old south-southwest is fading while a new one builds in and peaks late Thursday into Friday.
Trade swell will bring surf to northeast exposures but onshore breeze will pick up quickly during the day to chop it up.
Quiet in the North Pacific at this time.
East swell from Blas continues into the middle of this week. Hurricane Celia will generate more swell. For now, east swell is expected to build Friday into Saturday and peak Sunday. Darby is also likely to generate swell for us. Will keep an eye on the development and bring you details as they become clearer.
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.
