Tuesday 10 4 22 morning call

Kane at the harbor yesterday morning.

Hookipa mid day.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 4ft
    , 13s, SW 220º
  • 1.3ft
    , 12s, S 185º


  • 3.1ft
    , 14s, NW 305º
  • 2.4ft
    , 9s, S 170º

The 4ft 13s at Lanai is probably a wrap of NW energy (Barbers has it too, but with the correct direction) and it won't get to our south shore. The southerly energy is pretty small, but the Lahaina area can get some of the NNE wrap instead. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 6.5ft
    , 11s, N 10º
  • 2.5ft
    , 16s, NNW 340º
  • 3.2ft
    , 9s, N 10º


  • 6.4ft
    , 13s, NW 325º


  • 5.3ft
    , 13s, NNE 20º


  • 4.5ft
    , 13s, NNE 20º
  • 4.9ft
    , 11s, NNE 20º
  • 2.2ft
    , 17s, NNW 330º

Mix of swells at the buoys, the most important of which locally will be the NNE 13s one. That seems to be confirmed by this image of the Kahului harbor. Home guess for Hookipa is head and a half.

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