And here's one of those magicians that can find those tiny barrels at the point.
The parking at foil beach was full too, but the scene and lineups were much more relaxed. It's also a lot easier to share waves with the fellow foilers.

I had 45 minutes before work when I decided to do another SUP foiling session and try to film a wave all the way to the beach with the gopro. That was an easy task, as all the three waves I caught went all the way (high tide helps the inside bump, as more energy travels across the reef). Here's the very first one I caught. The paddle out on a SUP is about 10 minutes (probably double on a prone), while the ride all the way to the beach is about 2 minutes. Enjoy.
4am significant buoy readings

2ft @ 13s from 203° (SSW)
Wind map at 9am shows some light trades already ruining the surfing conditions.
Wind map at noon has windfoiling written all over.
The low north of the islands is now aiming the winds better at us (unfortunately much more energy missing us to the west). NNW swell predicted by Surfline for Saturday, Sunday, Monday around 7-8f 11s, but the wind will be onshore.
Nothing in the South Pacific.
