Hey GP, just wanted to give you a heads up that I've been working with Surfline for over a year (since before I first commented and emailed with you about it) to set up surf cams at two spots: one at sandpiles and one at kahului harbor, and I'm stoked to report that we finally have the installation scheduled for early September! We will finally have a way to check conditions on the north shore/wai side besides the paia bay cam!

Hopefully the rest of Maui's surfing community is as excited about this as I am. I thought it would be a simple and quick process, taking maybe a couple weeks, but it turned out to be an huge amount of work. I have so much more gratitude now for the guy that set up the lahaina cam now... seriously, I had no idea how much time and energy it would take to get this done (not too mention how expensive it is! (thankfully surfline is helping with the expenses). Anyway I just wanted to share the great news that we should have these cams live just in time for the start of winter season!
