Today I put Barbers in the north shore buoys list, as it's the only local one that gives an indication of the NW energy in the water. Those 7.4ft 10s that yesterday were at the NW buoy never really made it here (or at least, I didn't notice), and today there should be a mix of a couple of different periods. Home guess for Hookipa is around head high with possible bigger sets.

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