Thursday 11 18 21 morning call

Small waves yesterday, this is Dave Kalama enjoying them with the appropriate vessel (photo by Jason Hall). I was out there too testing a new innovation of the foil world that will open up many more possibilities and possibly finally allow me to do SUP foiling downwinders without struggling to take off. More info soon.

3am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.4ft @ 14s from 190° (S)

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

North shore
5.9ft @ 9s from 15° (NNE)


3.6ft @ 11s from 24° (NNE)
2.9ft @ 9s from 31° (NE)

4.3ft @ 10s from 13° (NNE)

Kaneohe Bay
4.9ft @ 10s from 24° (NNE)

Short period NNE energy continues at the buoys, it should be a day similar to yesterday. Home guess for Hookipa is chest to shoulder high and clean.
