Friday 3 26 21 morning call

One picture from the Hookipa yesterday morning session, before we start the late morning Kai Lenny show.

Top 10 reasons why I like living in Maui: I can watch and shoot Kai. Seriously!

Kai is 28. I'm 100% sure that he hasn't peaked yet and that he won't for still quite a long time. How good is he gonna be in 5 years?

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.7ft @ 16s from 194° (SSW)


1.7ft @ 16s from 185° (S)

Long period energy continues at the buoys. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency. That's a head high one.

North shore
5.8ft @ 12s from 339° (NNW)

6.6ft @ 14s from 340° (NNW)


7ft @ 13s from 337° (NNW)
4.3ft @ 9s from 48° (NE)

Second peak of this swell is happening right now. Home guess for Hookipa is head and two thirds to double and clean. Eastern exposures getting smaller. Trade winds slowly coming back, but only in the afternoon, back to cranking over the weekend .
