Sunday 12 4 22 morning call

The NNE swell got a lot bigger than predicted. I took this one around 5pm.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore
No southerly energy at the buoys, but Lahaina will have some N wrap. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

The old NW swell is gone, today it's all about the NNE energy that, judging from the N buoy reading, should continue to provide waves all day. Home guess for Hookipa is head and half peaky waves with occasional bigger ones. Eastern exposures will have waves too, no wind until around 11am.
Kahului harbor has waves too for the second day of the HSA contest at the Jetty.

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