Overall it was about waist high at the Point like the one below, but I got lucky once and was in position for a rare shoulder high screamer at the Cave. That thing got so hollow on the inside that I couldn’t help thinking: “that’s a section that would be a nightmare with the foil! I’m glad I got three fins and plenty rail in the water instead!”
That’s how a perfect foiling waves looks like instead, nice and soft. The picture from Alex Aguera is from the day before (October 3) at the spot I foiled too. Wonderful conditions before the wind hit.
As a matter of fact, on the way back I foiled a peak in the Launiupoko area and it was quite fun. I confirm that there is a waist high bump from the south.
Back to yesterday, here’s the usual windsurfing at Hookipa photo by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.
5am significant buoy readings
1.9ft @ 15s from 137° (SE)
2ft @ 15s from 150° (SE)
Disregard the direction, what counts is that there is long period southerly energy. Stay tuned for a beach report at one point, because I’m gonna go there to get out of the wind.
3.6ft @ 14s from 307° (WNW)
2.1ft @ 16s from 344° (NNW)
For the wind prediction of the day, I picked the two models at the bottom of the Windguru page. It’s gonna be very windy. Nothing to be excited about, even if you’re a wind/kite surfer, because when the prediction is in the red color, it always end up being up and down with the squalls.
