Maui Surf Forecast

North: Surf heights are expected to be waist/shoulder high today. The best breaks could get up to head high. Trade swell could get overhead at the best exposures.

West: Surf heights are expected to be waist/shoulder high today for spots open to the swells with northerly influence. The best breaks could get up to head high. Trade swell could get overhead at the best exposures. Spots catching the southwest could get up to waist/shoulder high or more.

South: Spots catching the south-southwest swell are forecast to be waist/shoulder high today with some head high sets and slightly overhead waves at the very best exposures.

Northeast trade swell for eastern exposures is forecast to hold up to chest / head high with overhead sets. We expect a northwest swell to continue filling in Monday.

Our current southwest swell is forecast to hold for southern exposures through Monday / Tuesday in the waist / shoulder / head high range.

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.
