I was lucky enough to be called by Francky who needed some help... Not knowing what it was about, on the phone I asked him if there was any money compensation involved (I was about to go surf...). By the end of the photoshoot, I was like:"Francky, thank you so much for thinking about me... please call me again next time! I'll pay you!!!"... that was one fun afternoon and the girls were stunning!"
Ok, back to the surf reporting, here's brother Josh enjoying a solo session on the south shore (that is until I joined him).
Sunset at Hookipa saw the usual head to overhead waves.
3am significant buoy readings
3.5ft @ 17s from 189° (S)
3.5ft @ 15s from 199° (SSW)
Solid numbers at the buoy, it should be a great day of above average waves on the south shore. Yesterday morning Thousand Peaks was knee to waist high, but between 7.30 and 8 there was a flurry of 22s sets up to head high, often closing out the channel between the right and the main peak. That was bizarre, also because they disappeared afterwards. Nature never stop surprising.
6.3ft @ 11s from 349° (NNW)
4.2ft @ 12s from 338° (NNW)
4.5ft @ 9s from 58° (ENE)
Hilo indicates a strong easterly swell from Sergio.
