Maliko Run Daily Forecast Weather Resource Page
February 27-28th, 2017 FLASH FLOOD WATCH UNTIL WEDNESDAY
Things are shaking up a bit with the cool weather lingering with wetter weather arriving soon with East to ENE trades in the 15-20mph range today through Wednesday. There are possible thunderstorms also lining up for a show tomorrow with surf in the 6 ft + range. Kind of mess out there, and be careful of the brown waters that will likely converge as the bay fills with runoff. Not ideal for Maliko. Stay home and tighten your cables and fins. Then Wednesday things may really slow as we shift to light SSW winds. Let’s hope this pushes through so we can get back to downwind business.

Note: Some common sites express wave height from the “back side” or also known as the “Hawaiian Scale”. You can learn all about how to measure the height of a wave here http://magicseaweed.com/help/surf-forecasting-basics/measuring-wave-heights
NOAA, Windguru, Maui County @ 2 km, and Magic Seaweed; where we pull our data, prefer to express from bottom of trough to peak in the face of a wave. Wind is expressed in MPH.
The ideal weather set up for a amazing downwind run on Maliko requires a combination of weather characteristics to set up or line up just so. You must be familiar with wind direction either by arrow angles such as this which represents the perfect ENE or .50 degrees for an epic session. Too North N or 3.9 – 4.0 (on shore) and too East or 6.0 or 7.0 – 8.0 (off shore)
The Maliko Run “downwind” season in typically April through September, although we get some good days in October through January but be warned that this is big wave season and is for the most advanced ocean paddler. The trades can range from 15-30 mph with often higher gusts.
