Hookipa in the evening.
Just watched this and went: Oh no... more money to be spent ahead?
4/5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
2.2ft @ 15s from 179° (S)
NW energy went down and it allows the southerly one to show again at Barbers. It's probably the angular spreading from those fetches I posted yesterday. This is a beautiful wave, but there's very few of them. Check the Lahaina
webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
5.1ft @ 12s from 328° (NW)
4.4ft @ 11s from 323° (NW)
3.5ft @ 11s from 331° (NNW)
5.3ft @ 8s from 67° (ENE)
NW swell down to 11s, but still up at the upstream buoys. Home guess for Hookipa is around head to head and a third high.
