Small but long period southerly readings at the buoys. Below are the maps of April 22 and 23, that show the possible sources.
Unfortunately the Lahaina webcam doesn't show much, but check it out anyway if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

3.8ft @ 9s from 335° (NNW)
4.7ft @ 8s from 7° (N)
3.4ft @ 11s from 344° (NNW)

Pretty decent size NNW swell still in the water, I think Maui is getting a bit more than the other islands because this swell is missing us to our NE. Tomorrow there should be another bigger bump. Hookipa should be overhead, but blown out. Waves also down the coast, but you need to find a spot sheltered by the wind.
Wind map at noon (the other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column).
