Tuesday 6 8 21 morning call

Hookipa yesterday afternoon.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

1.5ft @ 14s from 191° (SSW)
1.4ft @ 12s from 196° (SSW)


2ft @ 13s from 188° (S)

Southerly energy continues the down trend. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
0.7ft @ 12s from 358° (N)

1.1ft @ 11s from 298° (WNW)


6ft @ 8s from 56° (ENE)
0.7ft @ 12s from 358° (N)

That 11-12s northerly energy at the buoys is so small it doesn't even deserves a mention (well, too late I guess). 6ft 8s from 56 would normally trigger a shoulder to head high home guess for Hookipa, but since yesterday it was so much smaller that what I had guessed, I'm going to be conservative and just call for waist-belly high. Low tide might have something to do with that. Whatever size it will be, it's an 8s windswell, so the waves will be weak and sloppy and with some wind on them.
