Thursday 4 8 21 morning call

Here's some photos from a 20 minutes coffee at the harbor before going to work. Eddie O. literally flying down the line.

Hookipa yesterday. Photo by Jimmie Hepp from this album.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

1.1ft @ 13s from 178° (S)
0.2ft @ 20s from 179° (S)


1.5ft @ 13s from 185° (S)
0.3ft @ 20s from 177° (S)

Small 13s energy at the buoys. Both show an auspicious sliver of 20s energy. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

5.3ft @ 10s from 28° (NNE)
5ft @ 11s from 30° (NNE)


6ft @ 8s from 20° (NNE)
5.3ft @ 11s from 21° (NNE)

NNE energy continues. Home guess for Hookipa is around head to head and a half. Harbor jetty and eastern exposures should have waves too. Haven't heard any report from Honolua, I still think there's some waves there too.
