Dan Taylor solidified his status of light wind extraordinaire yesterday, flying with a 3.5 in extremely light wind followed by JD on his efoil.

Eddie swell is now down to moderate levels and all the north shore spots will be surfable today. Home guess for Hookipa is head and a half to double and relatively clean thanks to the lack of wind in the early morning. Notice the presence of different periods at the buoys that will cause irregular breaking patterns and overlap of sets.
