Sunday 7 18 21 morning call

Hookipa yesterday afternoon.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.5ft @ 14s from 195° (SSW)


3.1ft @ 14s from 188° (S)

Southerly energy most likely peaking at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

I usually wait for a set to snip the image. But if you don't check it yourself, you'll never know about the consistency and if there's lulls like this and how long they last.

North shore

6.8ft @ 9s from 65° (ENE)
3.1ft @ 6s from 71° (ENE)

Almost 7ft 9s, home guess for Hookipa is for overhead sloppy waves.

Forecast and energy spectrum of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
