Hookpa yesterday evening.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 1.4ft
    , 13s, SSW 200º
  • 1ft
    , 10s, SSW 205º
  • 0.3ft
    , 17s, SSW 210º


  • 1.9ft
    , 11s, S 180º
  • 0.6ft
    , 13s, S 185º

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

North shore


  • 3.5ft
    , 8s, NE 35º
  • 1.8ft
    , 13s, E 90º

Short period NE swell declined a bit compared to yesterday, but that should be compensated (at least on eastern exposures) by the 1.8ft 13s from 90 degrees produced by the tropical storm Frank. Home guess for Hookipa is waist to chest high, bigger on eastern exposures. Lovely no wind conditions in the morning.

Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found here.
