Thursday 1 7 21 morning call

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

North shore

10.9ft @ 16s from 339° (NNW)
6.9ft @ 14s from 340° (NNW)


8.5ft @ 15s from 323° (NW)
5.7ft @ 13s from 323° (NW)

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.

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).
