I was inexplicably alone for most of my session yesterday morning.
Hookipa mid day.
significant buoy readings and discussion.
We saw the small long period energy starting yesterday, the surprise today is that 1.7s 13s. Lahaina town might see some of the north wrap also. Check the Lahaina
webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
8.9ft @ 10s from 21° (NNE)
7.8ft @ 10s from 341° (NNW)
8.1ft @ 11s from 10° (N)
Long lasting short period energy is still at the buoys, now coming from a more northerly to NNE direction. The rights at Hookipa love that direction, my guess is head and a half with possible bigger sets and kinda soft, clean and peaky. Possibly excellent.
