Fun windsurfing conditions yesterday at Hookipa shown in this photo by Jimmie Hepp from this album.
1.9ft @ 14s from 218° (SW)
1.2ft @ 14s from 188° (S)
Small kind southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam
if interested, for size, conditions and consistency (there's not much).
2.8ft @ 14s from 347° (NNW)
2ft @ 15s from 324° (NW)
New low 15s NNW energy at the buoys, while a new large WNW swell is predicted to start rising tonight. It should be west enough to make the guess for the local waters challenging due to the shadowing of the upstream islands. For today, those 6.3ft 8s from 54 degrees will be the dominant energy in the water of the north shore and the eastern exposures. Head high plus peaks with occasional more organized NNW sets and poor conditions is my home guess for Hookipa.
This is one of the windiest Windguru maps I've ever seen for Maui. Notice how the wind is often ESE though, so the morning surf might actually be ok before the wind fills in. Also notice the very heavy rain predicted for Tuesday morning. Too far away to be concerned, we'll keep an eye on it in the coming days.
