A shortboard and a longboard session for me yesterday. No photo of the day, this is literally the first photo that appeared at the top of my facebook feed. We sure don’t look like fish, every shark attack to a surfer is an incredibly improbable mistake. So improbable that driving at any time on any highway is a much more dangerous activity.

3am significant buoy readings
2.4ft @ 12s from 209° (SSW)
2.7ft @ 14s from 189° (S)
Interesting numbers at the local buoys. Unlike Barbers, Lanai doesn’t report the long period swell, but I believe it’s only a temporary thing. What’s great is that 2.7ft 14s reading, which should provide with some consistency in between the slowly arriving long period sets. Below is a picture of the Lahaina webcam yesterday at sunset. That is obviously a long period set.
Btw, this is the tentative schedule of the HSA contest at Breakwall this weekend.
7.2ft @ 9s from 38° (NE)
3.7ft @ 11s from 321° (NW)
3.1ft @ 9s from 345° (NNW)
2.3ft @ 10s from 351° (N)
The NW buoy reading is due to the vicinity to the local low. Locally, we have a mix of small NW to NE energies that should make for another small day at Hookipa. Hard to guess the size, max head high but with smaller average size is my call from home. Won’t be able to report, as I’ll be driving to Lahaina in the dark, but the conditions should be very clean.
