Friday 4 9 21 morning call

Hookipa yesterday. Photo by Jimmie Hepp from this album.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

1ft @ 16s from 166° (SSE)
0.8ft @ 12s from 179° (S)


1.1ft @ 13s from 193° (SSW)
0.8ft @ 18s from 199° (SSW)

Mix of medium and long period small kind energy at the buoys. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency. Looks pretty minimal.

North shore
5.4ft @ 10s from 34° (NE)


4.1ft @ 9s from 33° (NE)
3.5ft @ 11s from 30° (NNE)
3.1ft @ 7s from 30° (NNE)

NNE energy started to decline at Pauwela, but still the only and dominant one on the north shore. Home guess for Hookipa is head to head and a third. Eastern exposures will still have waves, not sure now about harbor and Honolua at this point.

Energy spectrum of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
