8 31 15 morning call



Afternoon surf session at Hookipa for me proved to be very challenging.
After 2 months of perfect waves in Indo, it's so hard to ride those bumpy waves, but no complains here. We're so lucky to have waves pretty much every day.
It was better on the south shore in the morning, as Jason Hall reported on his facebook page.

Today could be an interesting one.
Here's the latest Ignacio position at 5am HST.

The rain shouldn't impact us directly, but there's moisture in the atmosphere as the radar shows.

4.6ft @ 10s from 55° (ENE)
3ft @ 8s from 47° (NE)
3ft @ 6s from 70° (ENE)

7.1ft @ 12s from 126° (ESE)
5.8ft @ 8s from 57° (ENE)
3.4ft @ 10s from 108° (ESE)

4.1ft @ 8s from 35° (NE)
3.6ft @ 13s from 97° (E)
3.2ft @ 11s from 83° (E)

4.4ft @ 12s from 171° (S)
2.8ft @ 8s from 45° (NE)

4ft @ 13s from 53° (ENE)
2.7ft @ 10s from 137° (SE)

2.3ft @ 13s from 210° (SSW)
1.6ft @ 12s from 222° (SW)

Waves pretty much from all directions. There's a place on the island that might get both wraps from the west and the east. But I'll check Hookipa first.

Wind map shows the small but very close E fetch from Ignacio and a wide one from the south. Soon we'll get the east swell from the next hurricane too. Forgot to circle the fetch and forgot the name of the hurricane too...
Wind should be light onshore. That's on the north shore.
