Wednesday 8 24 22 morning call

Hookipa yesterday morning.

Hookipa yesterday afternoon.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 2.2ft
    , 13s, S 170º


  • 4ft
    , 12s, SSW 195º

South swell yesterday was actually bigger than the day before. The webcam was down at the time of the post, so I couldn't point that out. Webcam over buoys, always. Today it's smaller, but still with beautiful and good size waves like the one below. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 3.4ft
    , 10s, NNW 330º


2.5ft, 11s, NW 325º


  • 2.5ft
    , 11s, NW 325º
  • 1.2ft
    , 9s, NNW 335º

First NW swell of the season continues at the buoys. Home guess for Hookipa is around head high and clean in the morning.
