Saturday 1 9 21 morning call

Thanks to Ken for the donation.

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.
South shore
No southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
6ft @ 12s from 339° (NNW)
3.4ft @ 10s from 341° (NNW)


4.9ft @ 13s from 325° (NW)
2.5ft @ 10s from 328° (NW)

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.

Wind map at noon .The other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column (click on animation of the 10 meter column).
