Monday 2 5 8 morning call

Double shortboard session again for me yesterday (when the waves are good, that's my first choice), the second one was at a fickle spot that I never surfed before. I got a feeling that I'll surf it again.

Here's a couple of shots from another wave. It's a pretty steep drop.

The good ones are the ones that wall up.

Plenty action in many other spots, here's Hookipa in a photo by Matt Brown. A little more user friendly, but still big enough to break boards.

Brother Junior seeks steepness on his foil and that's an advanced thing to do. Photo by Tomoko.

That's how a foiling lineup looks like. Some people flying over the inside bumps, some paddling back out. It's getting crowded out there, but foilers can share waves much easier than surfers. Photo by Destination 360.

A six men canoe is another way to ride those small insiders.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for nothing from the south, but there should still be westerly energy in Kihei.

North shore
5.9ft @ 13s from 308° (WNW)

6.4ft @ 13s from 297° (WNW)

8.4ft @ 14s from 320° (NW)

4.8ft @ 13s from 303° (WNW)

3.5ft @ 14s from 324° (NW)

WNW swell trending down at the buoys as predicted, stay tuned for an Hookipa beach report around 7am.

Wind map at noon shows very light variable winds. The very favorable surfing wind conditions will last until Thursday. Make the most of it.

North Pacific shows a new WNW fetch.

South Pacific shows a large fetch partially blocked by New Zealand. Just 1f 15s predicted by Surfline out of it on Tuesday Feb 13, but looks like we could get more westerly wraps in the meantime.

Morning sky shows some clouds.

6am rain radar.
