Three shortboard sessions for me yesterday. I took this image on the Lahaina side in the afternoon.
After the trusty Rusty, I pulled out another semi-forgotten board out of the house rack. This incredibly fun 5.7 Proctor 'Lil Rascal got bumped out of the car rack a year ago by a similar one, but it's the perfect board to try out the Mark Richards twinnish fin set I just purchased. That's what I rode all day yesterday. It's so loose that requires much less foot pressure and a more cruisy, relaxed, Machado-like style.
Don't have enough money to buy a new board, but feel the need for a change? Changing your fins is almost like changing your board... come check out the vast assortment we have at Hi-Tech.
This is my pick of Jimmie Hepp's gallery of the windsurfing action at Hookipa.
6am significant buoy readings
2.9ft @ 12s from 166° (SSE)
2.3ft @ 12s from 181° (S)
2.5ft @ 13s from 189° (S)
2.3ft @ 13s from 197° (SSW)
South swell still running, just went down a second or two in the period (which is great for many spots on the Lahaina side, btw). This image from the new cam shows a nice set at Breakwall, so I'm calling waist to chest possibly occasionally bigger. I will report around 8.30 from Ukumehame. Btw, yesterday I heard for the first time the nickname Nukumehame... good one!
2.5ft @ 12s from 314° (NW)
4.8ft @ 9s from 82° (E)
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has a NW, a NNE and the windswell fetch. I like the NNE one because is relatively close to us and because I like that direction.
Nothing from the south.
