Bottom to top turn combo by Kai Lenny at Hookipa yesterday morning.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.9ft @ 15s from 197° (SSW)


2.2ft @ 17s from 192° (SSW)

Lanai keeps showing long period SSW energy. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

3.5ft @ 12s from 327° (NW)


2.7ft @ 8s from 36° (NE)
2.6ft @ 13s from 332° (NNW)
2.5ft @ 11s from 355° (N)

NW swell down to 2.6ft 13s, but still in the water together with other smaller energies from N and NE. Home guess for Hookipa is around head high and clean in the early morning.
