I'm writing this at 5.30 and the wind is already blowing at 15 at Hookipa. Not sure if you're gonna see a photo/report from it later, I might go look for small cleaner waves somewhere else.

Trade winds forecasted to lighten up a bit the next couple of days, before going all over the place because of tropical storm Ana, which will be right on top of Maui on Monday Oct 20, as the forecasted weather map below shows.

Take a look at the windguru forecast also (link n.16 on the right) and remember a GP rule that has NO exceptions: whenever you see the color red/purple in the wind strength, wind related sports are going to suck.
Check the amount of rain forecasted for Monday too...

Out of here. Have fun in the sun everyone!
