Thursday 3 30 23 morning call

Hookipa yesterday. That's as big as the waves got.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 1.8ft
    , 13s, SSW 200º
  • 2.6ft
    , 7s, S 180º
  • 1ft
    , 11s, S 170º

1.8ft 13s of southerly energy at Lanai. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 5ft
    , 12s, NNW 345º
  • 3.9ft
    , 8s, E 100º


  • 4.3ft
    , 9s, E 85º
  • 3.7ft
    , 6s, E 100º


  • 5.6ft
    , 7s, SSE 160º
  • 2ft
    , 13s, NW 310º

NW energy picked up at the distant NW buoys and it's showing a wrap of 2ft 13s at Barbers. None of the other leftover local buoys records it and my challenging home guess for Hookipa is chest to head high and clean. Plenty flat moments between sets though.

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