Tuesday 8 16 22 morning call

I promise the next video will be a bit more exciting, as yesterday I tried a monofoil. But in the meantime, here's my review of a great waterproof dressing.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 2.9ft
    , 9s, SSE 165º
  • 2.1ft
    , 5s, SE 140º
  • 0.6ft
    , 14s, SSE 165º


  • 2.5ft
    , 9s, SSE 155º
  • 1.4ft
    , 5s, SSE 160º
  • 0.2ft
    , 17s, SSW 200º

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

North shore

  • 2.6ft
    , 9s, N 0º


  • 2ft
    , 11s, N 350º


  • 1.5ft
    , 10s, N 355º
  • 1.1ft
    , 8s, NNE 25º


  • 2.6ft
    , 10s, N 0º
  • 2.7ft
    , 6s, ENE 70º
  • 1.9ft
    , 8s, ENE 65º

Small northerly energy in the water, home guess for Hookipa is waist to belly and clean with the lack of wind in the morning.

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

I've used the Nexcare brand waterproof bandages for years and they are great. I had six stitches in my forearm and went windsurfing for eight days straight starting one day later. As long as you clean the surounding area with alcohol before applying the bandages they are great.
