Wednesday 7 7 21 morning call

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.
South shore
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.

North shore

1.4ft @ 10s from 313° (NW)
0.7ft @ 15s from 285° (WNW)

1.2ft @ 16s from 250° (WSW)


3.7ft @ 8s from 51° (ENE)
0.6ft @ 15s from 322° (NW)

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.

Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found here (click on animation of the 10 meter column).
