Fun waves on the south shore yesterday.
Jimmy Lewis nose riding one of his creations.
She's one of my favorite subjects to shoot.
I spent the whole day on that side. At sunset I passed on this perfection, as it was a bit too small/inconsistent.
Blog reader Scott Werden kindly sent me this photo of the Makena side.
4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
3.4ft @ 15s from 195° (SSW)
3.8ft @ 15s from 189° (S)
Pretty solid 15s energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
1.2ft @ 16s from 250° (WSW)
Tiny WNW energy at the buoys, so small I don't think it's going to do anything at all locally (and don't feel like investigation on the source fetch). With the windswell on a downward trend, home guess for Hookipa is waist/belly high.
