2 27 16 morning call

More big waves all day yesterday, but here's a couple of more shots from Thursday.

Tonight there's the Don't crack under pressure movie at the Macc. "Maui Grom short film" to open the night including two Maui young windsurfers.

The three buoys all show a down trend that will continue until tomorrow when a 10f 15s reinforcement will arrive.
At 4am Pauwela reads
6.5ft @ 14s from 326° (NW)
3.9ft @ 9s from 345° (NNW)
3.2ft @ 11s from 332° (NNW)
Hookipa is going to be surfable. Stay tuned for the photo report.

Wind map shows a solid NW fetch. No shortage of waves anytime soon. Next extra large swell on Wednesday, which really seems to be the day of the week.

Still fetches south, tomorrow and Monday gonna look even better and SOLID south swell in a week.

MC2km maps not updated yet at the time of this post, I'll use yesterday's run to show today's map at 2pm. That is sailable and Hookipa should be pretty spectacular.

Well, in the meantime, the maps did get updated and I'm gonna use this as an example of how important it is for this maps to be less than 24h old. That's the same 2pm map and the trades have been down downgraded into the 10-15 range. See the more manageable wave size, I still think someone will sail Hookipa. Maybe not as many as it would have been if it was 15-20. I will definitely have a look myself.

It's going to be interesting to see how the windsurfers will launch (and come back) with the new sandless version of the beach at Hookipa.
In 15 years, I've never see it like this. The sand will eventually come back, the question is when.
