Maui Surf Report


Current conditions overview

    High pressure centered north of the main Hawaiian islands will be moving east through the middle of the week. Trades will decrease late Tuesday into Wednesday as a front approaches the islands from the west. The front dissipates while passing north of the islands during the second half the week, allowing the return of locally strong trades by the weekend.
