This is a shot I took just after my session, but I really wish I had my gopro with me in the water to shoot all the little barrels with the rising sun through it that I saw when paddling out in the channel after a wave.
Instead I had to save the gopro's battery for the lesson I had to give later in the morning. More gorgeousness. Thank you Maui.
That's how I guess Hookipa looked later in the day.
At 4am Waimea reads
3.3ft @ 9s from 4° (N)
Light offshore in the morning and then konas getting stronger throughout the day. Probably sailable at Lanes but with very small waves.
2.1ft @ 9s from 194° (SSW)
and that 20s reading makes checking the webcam worth it.
