Another epic day for wind sports at Hookipa. My pick of Jimmie Hepp's album of yesterday's action.
Here's a short video I filmed yesterday. Take one of one, as you can see. I promise a more interesting one coming up soon, as yesterday I tried an F-ONE Strike for the first time and recorded my first impressions.
4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
No southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
New pulse of NW energy is at the buoys. Below is Waimea's graph that shows a jump of 2-3 feet that happened late yesterday evening. Waves are going to be bigger than yesterday, my guess for Hookipa is double overhead at least, hence good only for the hard core surfers.
