Kai Lenny left the harbor with a fleet of 2 boats and 6 skies, but I haven't seen any photos on the social media yet. Yuri Soledade was faster and posted this image of Jaws by John Varney. I guess that is considered "small".
This north shore left looked pretty fun, but I ended up surfing "the other bay" instead. It was the opener of the season for me and Russ and we had a fun power hour contest that ended 12 to 10. Doesn't matter who won...
The real bay on the west side was well overhead at the Cave. This is Ferdi tackling waves on that side of the island. Photo by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.
Russ instead went sailing in his backyard. A session that required a hell lot of local knowledge. You can see him mid top turn checking what's behind to decide a possible early kick out, which is something he did 90% of the times. This one instead was followed by a big one so he rode it all the way to the inside.
4am significant buoy readings
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, I'm gonna call it flat. No wrap in Lahaina was confirmed, that only happens on big north swells.
10.9ft @ 15s from 336° (NNW)
10.3ft @ 15s from 317° (NW)
9.9ft @ 15s from 320° (NW)

Sunset Beach was too big to run the last day of the Triple Crown contest, which will be held today. Should be fun to watch.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has westerly narrow fetches.
South Pacific got something too.
