Friday 12 2 22 morning call

Hookipa yesterday morning.

HSA contest at the harbor jetty in the weekend. Below the tentative heat order.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore
No southerly energy at the buoys. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 7.5ft
    , 15s, NW 315º


  • 8.3ft
    , 15s, NW 310º
  • 4.1ft
    , 13s, WNW 300º


  • 4.9ft
    , 17s, NW 325º
  • 4.1ft
    , 14s, NW 315º

New long period NW swell peaked during the night. 3ft difference between Waimea and Hanalei, hard to guess what's in the water locally. I'm gonna throw a generic double overhead (probably plus) for Hookipa in the morning.

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

Fetches map (circles legend: red: direct aim, blue: angular spreading, black: blocked, yellow: possibly over the ice sheet) from Windy.
