First High Surf Warning of the Season

Share this

The North and West Facing Shores of Maui will be going under a high surf warning tonight at 6:00 PM. That means wave heights of 25 feet or more for north facing shorelines and wave heights of up to 20 feet on west facing shorelines. Casual beach goers should be aware of large shore break and strong rip currents through the weekend. That being said, the waves should be quite the spectacle this weekend and into next week. These are the type of waves that are big enough for Jaws to break out in Haiku. It also appears that we are getting into a sustained big wave pattern through the next week. A second slightly smaller big wave event is expected on Tuesday. Then a third swell is expected for late next Thursday or Friday. While it can be difficult to predict wave heights a week away, the initial forecast suggests that this third event may provide the biggest waves yet. Stay safe and enjoy mother nature’s show over the next few days!
