Never trust surfline forecaster emails...
Well, I guess they meant that there's no ground swells. But the windswell is pumping!
Hookipa yesterday was head high, with occasional overhead sets.
Today it's going to be even bigger, since overnight the Makapu buoy went up to 8 feet, 8 seconds from 60 degrees.
I predict head to logo with occasional mast high sets and possibility for rocks and shore break victims. I'll be there after work around 2.30 for a little sail and photoshoot, just like yesterday.
There we go, here are the best three shots from yesterday, peculiarly taken one right after the other.
Laurent uses his body to pivot a wave 360.
This is Josh Stone with (I'm assuming) his son. Not sure how old he is, but he looks not older than 10 to me. A little help to launch through the gnarly shore break (I got worked pretty well) is needed.
As soon as he launched, he did a little jump on the first wave. There we go: another young ripper is about to impact the scene soon.
My sailing sucked, but this time I used a smaller board (less pressure to put on the rail with the back foot) and at least my foot did ok. Also because I quit as soon as a little discomfort appeared. We'll see how it goes today.
In the meantime, in case you missed the last post, here's another shot of our bike dog. Notice the tongue.
