Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
Barbers is mostly reading NW wrap these days and can't be used to detect small southerly energy. Check the Lahaina and Kihei webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency. The collage of the two below shows more waves in Kihei, which is more exposed to westerly directions (Lanai shelters Lahaina).
10.7ft @ 15s from 309° (WNW)
7.3ft @ 9s from 66° (ENE)
Yet another WNW pulse picked is picking up at the buoys. Below is the graph of the NW101 buoy, showing it in green. Half the size of the previous one, but still pretty solid. The Pacioos forecast below shows it picking up locally in the afternoon around 6ft 16s. Home guess for Hookipa is head and a half growing to double throughout the day.
Forecast of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
