New long period NW energy is on the rise at all the upstream buoys. Below are the graphs of NW and Hanalei together with the Surfline forecast. Home guess for Hookipa is head to head and a half to start with, increasing to double overhead plus by sunset. Wind conditions should be calm all morning, with only light sea breeze in the afternoon.
