This is harbor Jetty's yesterday.
This is Hookipa instead, in a photo by James Flynn.
Jaws went off the last couple of days, here's some shots from Fish Bowl Diary, starting from Kai Lenny who very timely took out the same F-One Strike that Kai Penny reviewed yesterday on this blog. Notice the perfect shape of the wing, it really looks like a bird gliding. An eagle to be more precise.
Erik Eader was there too and Robby Swift posted this shot of a radical aerial attempt.
FBD has the same move from the jet-ski. The shots of January 7 are in this album.
4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
No southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
6ft @ 12s from 339° (NNW)
3.4ft @ 10s from 341° (NNW)
The steady supply of NW energy continues at the buoys. Today the waves should be smaller than yesterday, with Hookipa probably around the head and a half mark. Beach report up later in the morning.
