The lack of wind is the talk of the island these days. I personally love it, as long as there's waves to ride. So unusual to see glassy waves in the morning that stay clean all day in Maui...
Cookie had his GoPro out yesterday afternoon and took a few pics. Here's the blog author paddling for a fun looking one.
And here he is going left.
More pics on Cookie's site.
This morning unfortunately the waves are pretty much gone on the north shore and there's very little stuff on the south shore. BUT, the good news is this South Pacific weather map modeled to happen on Friday May 29th:
That means that Friday June 5th Oahu will be hit by a MAJOR south swell. And I will be there...
Well, actually seen the size of that swell that day is not one of those that will make a huge difference. Meaning, at that size there's plenty spots in Maui that work just as good... (for surfing, not for windsurfing).
The real difference will be in those days, like today, when it's two feet at the buoy and Maui is knee high and Oahu shoulder high (just saw a nice set rolling in on the Surfline Ala Moana webcam).
But anyway, it will be an intense start of a surfing/sailing vacation that sees me more and more excited as the departure date (very likely June 4that this point) gets closer.
