Beautiful waves on the south shore yesterday, no time to take photos, here’s Philippe Carneri of Horue doing some winGfoiling freestyle.
4am significant buoy readings and discussion
2.9ft @ 9s from 170° (S)
2.2ft @ 13s from 246° (WSW)
0.9ft @ 11s from 188° (S)
2.3ft @ 9s from 169° (SSE)
2.2ft @ 14s from 266° (W)
1.7ft @ 11s from 216° (SW)
2.6ft @ 13s from 272° (W)
Today the leftover south is down to 11s and the two local south facing buoys can more easily distinguish it from the 13-14s westerly energy.

I got a snapshot of both below, for once Kihei beats Lahaina both in quantity and quality of the surf!
No photos from yesterday, here’s Hi-Tech manager Steve Roan flying pretty high on his Gofoil Iwa wing. He will be very busy running the Maui Race Series windsurfing races at Kanaha for the next three […]
