Sunday 8 21 22 morning call

Hookipa yesterday afternoon.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South swell is smaller than the Surfline forecast (4.2ft 17s) at the buoys, but should still provide waves at least in the head high range (depending on the spot, of course). Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.
