Local photographer Dayanidhi Das is featured in this article on Surfline, from which I grabbed this one of Kody Young.
My day was very busy (and pleasant) and the only time I had to pull out the camera was well after the sun went over the West Maui's. Hence, this photo of Hookipa is not quite as sharp as Dayanidhi's, but it shows the fun size.
5-6am significant buoy readings
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for a minimal 0.6f 9s. Yesterday it was knee high in Lahaina, probably today even smaller. But a small long period bump should arrive tomorrow.
1.4ft @ 18s from 314° (NW)
Buoy readings reflect the multiple fetches we observed in the last few days. Today on tap there is:
- a low but very long period NW swell
- a lovely 3.6f 13s period N swell
- a 10s easterly swell today smaller than yesterday at 5.6f
Plenty to choose from and with very clean conditions everywhere.
Wind map at noon shows very light breezes. Should be another balmy one, but with a cold start.
North Pacific shows again fetches from W, N (pretty good one) and E.
South Pacific has nothing to offer.
