The buoys readings today are in the photo below.
Looks like I made another good call yesterday! It wasn't always epic but it did have some epic moments or, more precisely, some epic sections. That is one of them. Thanks Jimmie!
So west side was the call, not for everybody though.
I saw photos of triple overhead Honolua on Facebook and I heard Robby Naish was on his standup somewhere down the coast...
The West Maui's were incredibly beautiful (better when seen from the ocean) without a single cloud on them.
And then in the evening the movie Addicted to life was the icing on the cake to wrap up a pretty epic day. I hope those guys had some epic rides, before busting their sticks!
Below is the three main buoys graphs next to each other (click on the photo if you can't read).
They all peaked at almost 15f (!) and the NW one shows us that today the swell will be on the decline. But if it's still 10.7ft @ 14s from 333° (NNW) at 6am at the Pauwela buoy, it means it's still going to be pretty big. Too big for me at Hookipa, that's for sure.
The wind map below shows a couple of NW fetches and a easterly direction in the local flow.
And windguru predicts just that: light easterly. Is it gonna be enough for sailing on the north shore?
It might, if it's gonna be a sunny day. Stay tuned for mid morning updates.
Have fun in the sun everyone!
