Maliko Run Daily Forecast Weather Resource Page
March 26, 2017
Maliko will rock today!
It’s 8:30 AM on Maui’s N. shore and the WNW swell hit last night about 5:30 pm, with the Pauwela buoy reading that jumped from 11 seconds to 20 seconds. Now it’s average reading at 17s at about 7 feet. We will continue to see the surf rise up to 10ft plus range. The swell will begin to drop through Tuesday.
The strong, gusty trades will continue East in the 20-25mph with gusts to 30+mph at times. The wind swell will be in the 8ft range plus the swell will equal an amazing Maliko Run today!
Like yesterday, today is for the absolutely best skilled and experienced paddlers. Please check your leashes, maybe double up, wear bright clothing and stay together. Take your GPS devices or be sure at least one in your party has theirs.

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
NOAA, Windguru, Maui County @ 2 km, Pat Caldwell, Hawaii Weather Today 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.
