Hookipa yesterday afternoon. Photo by Jimmie Hepp from this album.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

1.6ft @ 14s from 191° (SSW)
0.8ft @ 18s from 196° (SSW)

Old 14s SSW energy at the buoys, while Lanai also feels a bit of a new 18s one. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

4.8ft @ 8s from 72° (ENE)
