Uncle on fomie in Lahaina yesterday morning.

Pavils yesterday afternoon.

Levi Siver about to demolish a soft lip at The Point.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

2.9ft @ 9s from 169° (SSE)
1.8ft @ 13s from 183° (S)


1.4ft @ 14s from 183° (S)
1.2ft @ 9s from 166° (SSE)
1.2ft @ 12s from 180° (S)

Medium/small southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

6.1ft @ 9s from 69° (ENE)
3.6ft @ 6s from 56° (ENE)

ENE windswell is still up and will continue to be so for several days ahead. Home guess for Hookipa is chest to shoulder high and sloppy. Bigger on eastern exposures.
