Friday 3 31 23 morning call

Hookipa yesterday mid day.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 1.7ft
    , 13s, SW 215º

Lanai shows some SW energy. Below are the maps of March 24 though 26 that show the Tasman Sea fetch that generated it.

Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 7.5ft
    , 9s, E 85º
  • 1.9ft
    , 11s, WNW 300º


  • 3.9ft
    , 15s, NE 45º
  • 6.6ft
    , 7s, ESE 110º
  • 3.1ft
    , 11s, NE 40º


  • 5.3ft
    , 7s, E 95º
  • 1.7ft
    , 13s, NE 45º
  • 0.7ft
    , 17s, NE 40º

The small NW energy pretty much disappeared at the buoys, but the N one shows a promising 4ft 15s from 45 degrees. Below are the maps of March 27 though 29 that show the fetch that generated it. Plenty angular spreading involved.

The Surfline forecast calls for a rise throughout the day and 3ft 13s at sunset.

Home guess for Hookipa in the morning is waist to chest high and clean with an up trend.

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