I did a bit of everything yesterday: shortboard surfing, SUP foiling and even a super fun 20 minutes (that’s how long the moderate sideon wind lasted) windfoiling session at Thousand Peaks. That was a first.
The winswell is pumping, look at the size of that wave in the afternoon at Hookipa! Photo by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.
4am significant buoy readings
1.6ft @ 18s from 135° (SE)
2ft @ 13s from 145° (SE)
2.8ft @ 14s from 185° (S)
New long period southerly energy recorded by a couple of outer buoys (the NE direction at the SW buoy is completely wrong as the buoy is heavily confused by the strong windswell), while a background 13-14s energy is still there. The waves on the south shore might be influenced too by the windswell and the local wind might easily be influenced by the strong trades. It’s gonna be hard to find clean conditions, but there might be spots/moments of clean conditions.
Wind map at noon shows strong easterly trades.
