Those two bodyboarders got barreled together. I love how the guy with the blue board didn't even flinch at the drop in, bottom turned around the offender and placed himself in position to get pitted. And I love how the other guy let him do that and got pitted too. I got the whole sequence, I might have to put it together in a clip. They both came out.
There was quite a traffic of jet skis and boats. Didn't hear much about Jaws (other than it was windy), but here's a couple of shots of Austin Kalama foiling on some outer reef. Posted by Gofoil.
If you're a foiler, you know that the scariest of the two moments is this one. He's looking into the abyss and the fear of overfoiling on such a drop must have been frightening.
This is the conditions around 5pm. A perfect 10, but still packed.
The waves really started to increase towards sunset.
Here's a fun wave during one of my sessions.
4am significant buoy readings
4.7ft @ 15s from 289° (WNW)
I would recommend checking the webcams to see if that wrap is actually making it to Kihei. Also to check the amount of the windswell left by the Kona, which should be plenty. Below is a photo by James Flinn that makes me think so.
14.5ft @ 14s from 7° (N)
16.3ft @ 15s from 345° (NNW)
