Saturday 6 15 24 morning call

Hookipa yesterday.

Couple of shots of the pumping south swell. This first one is of the Wailea side by James Flynn.


5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion. South shore
      • 3.6ft
        , 15s, SSW 200º

      • 4.4ft
        , 15s, S 170º
      • 1.1ft
        , 11s, S 175º

Pumping south swell at the buoys. Check the Kihei webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore


            • 5ft
              , 8s, E 80º
            • 2.1ft
              , 10s, N 355º
            • 2.7ft
              , 4s, E 80º
Northerly energy disappeared at all the buoys but Pauwela, so those 2ft 10s won't last long and soon it's going to be windswell only. Home guess for Hookipa is around waist to chest high.

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