Talking about Tahiti (that's where Ben lives), Kai Lenny just posted this picture by Julien le Prevost. Tricky duck dive with the foil in those shallow waters.
I watched this video of nose riding at a high performance wave like Canggu's Pererenan right and thought about sharing. I also wondered why the only surfed the right, as I like the left a lot better. Maybe too high performance/steep/fast... or maybe they didn't want to deprive the shortboarders of the whole spot.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion
Long period southerly energy not at the local buoys anymore, but probably still in the water, check the Lahaina webcam if interested. I might have caught the wave of the day in this image... actually, the guy did.
6.2ft @ 8s from 81° (E)
Hookipa should have waves too, Pavils and The point should be really fun with that size and direction. You guys enjoy.
Wind map at noon (the other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column).
North Pacific has the NW fetch we saw yesterday, which unfortunately moved north and not any closer to us. Not ideal, but better than nothing.
That's a nice S fetch down under, next week should be waves on the south shore.
Keep an eye on the radar, you saw the heavy rain that happened yesterday afternoon, despite no rain in the morning like today.
