Saturday 1 22 22 morning call

Kanaha yesterday. I didn't miss the wind one bit during this fantastic three weeks of epic glassy waves we just had, but I also had a lot of fun in my light wind wave wingfoiling session yesterday. Do all disciplines, and you're always happy in Maui.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
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.

North shore
17.9ft @ 16s from 315° (NW)


16.7ft @ 17s from 314° (NW)


13.8ft @ 17s from 311° (NW)

New WNW swell picked up at the outer buoys much bigger than predicted, reaching 20ft 16s at the NW101 yesterday evening. As a consequence, most of the north shore will be too big, seek for sheltered places.

I heard rumors of a Redbull event at Jaws. Ladies only, mixed with the other surfers in the lineup, I doubt there will be a streaming, as I didn't find anything about it on the Redbull TV website.

Forecast of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
