Thanks to the lack of wind, Hookipa yesterday morning had some high quality waves.
Imai, 12 o'clock.
Sunset session was full of young ripping girls. This might be Savanna Stone.
significant buoy readings and discussion.
2ft @ 13s from 193° (SSW)
1.7ft @ 16s from 180° (S)
Decent southerly energy at the buoys. Check the Lahaina
webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
6.4ft @ 12s from 336° (NNW)
4.7ft @ 12s from 327° (NW)
5ft @ 12s from 322° (NW)
3.7ft @ 13s from 332° (NNW)
NW swell picked as slowly as predicted and is still on its way up. Below are the graph of Pauwela together with yesterday's prediction and the Surfline forecast. Home guess for Hookipa is head to head and a half. No wind at my house at the moment, so it should be clean. But without the wind maps, can't tell till when that is gonna last.
