Maui Surf Forecast
North: Northwest swell is head high + with the best breaks running 2 to 3 feet overhead but easing through the day.
West: Spots catching the northwest wrap could get up to head high to overhead. Spots open to the southwest are pretty flat.
South: Surf heights are knee/waist high today with some spots getting up to chest high later in the day.
Surf is forecast to slowly ease through the weekend and into early next week.
A long-period west-northwest swell is expected to fill in late Thursday night and hold into the weekend before fading into next week.
Surf heights along east facing shores will start to increase Friday into the weekend as the trades return and strengthen. We could see advisory level surf by Monday / Tuesday.
Along south facing shores small waves are forecast through the weekend with mainly small background long-period energy expected. A long-period south swell is expected to fill in Tuesday night into Wednesday of next week.
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.
