Maui Surf Forecast

North: Surf heights are head high to overhead today. The best breaks could get up to double overhead or more.

West: Surf is knee/waist high today. Spots catching the west-northwest wrap will be a little bit bigger.

South: Surf is knee/waist high today.

A large long-period northwest swell has been building overnight. This swell is expected to peak today before slowly fading through Monday. A gale north of the area has produced a smaller and shorter-period north swell. That swell is expected to gradually shift out of the north-northeast. These two swells will combine to produce advisory level surf along north and west facing shores of the smaller islands through tonight.

Nothing significant expected out of the South Pacific.

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.
