Conditions were excellent in the early morning at Hookipa. From 6 to 8 the offshore magic made those 4ft 9s waves from the NE barrel at a full tide, confirming what I learned long time ago: as far as conditions go, nothing matters more than the wind. This photo was taken after my first session, when the offshores stopped blowing. Still glassy, but “only” an 8.
Later on the usual thermal/tradish breeze picked up and brought the conditions back to normal. Justin Simmer didn’t seem to notice.
Kai Lenny in a turn that I would have not dared doing (if he falls, he hits the guy). He’s a pro and was in total control, safety first for us normal please.
Nice spray by Annie.
4am significant buoy readings and discussion
2.3ft @ 12s from 190° (S)
GP’s rule of thumb for the travel time from that buoy hermetically says: 16h @ 16s +/-1h -/+1s. 10s are 6s less than the provided reference 16, so you have to add 6h to that and that makes for a total of 22h. So it’s possible that sometimes in the afternoon, we’ll see some of that energy arriving in Maui. Tomorrow will be much bigger.

North Pacific’s close by fetch looks very impressive this morning. This swell is going to reach warning levels on Tuesday, I think. Very consistent too, not many lulls between sets.
South Pacific has a decent fetch too.
