Saturday 11 20 21 morning call

I talked about big news coming up in the foil world. If you don't know what a Foil Drive is, here's my best way of describing it (youtube it, if it interests you). We carry them at Hi-Tech. Call to be put on the waiting list.

Thanks to it, yesterday I was able to do a SUP foiling downwinder in 20 knots! Usually I only try in 30+ knots and still struggle to take off, but with my new personal invisible jet-ski, I can get up on foil any time I want and now I can finally learn how to ride the windswell bumps. An absolute game changer.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.2ft @ 12s from 209° (SSW)

Very small southerly energy at Barbers. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3.5ft @ 9s from 28° (NNE)


2.3ft @ 10s from 12° (NNE)
1.8ft @ 8s from 13° (NNE)

Kaneohe Bay
2.6ft @ 9s from 29° (NNE)

Small short period NNE energy continues at the outer buoys, home guess for Hookipa is waist to chest high.
