A longboard and a shortboard session for me yesterday. The day was characterized by the moderate Kona wind that I forgot to mention in the morning’s call. The noon wind map gave a hint, but it was more the whole flow of each hour’s map that made it clear. Anyone who is interested in what the wind will do during the day, should run the whole day of the maps linked at link n. -2 (click on Animation in the 10 Meter Wind column. They’re not always correct, but they’re the best prediction available at the current time.
Here’s some shots I took during the day. Very little chance you’re gonna guess this spot, as it rarely looks like this.

Iao Valley’s spotlight. I thought Kai Lenny must be surfing down there…
So today we have what Pauwela indicates with light Kona winds in the morning and excellent conditions pretty much everywhere on the north shore (until it gets too strong). I will report from Hookipa before 7. Overhead and excellent is my guess from home. Enjoy today, as tomorrow will have onshore winds.
Also notice the 3.5ft 15s from 28 reading at Mokapu. That is probably in the water also in Maui, but Pauwela is more exposed to the NW energy and probably can’t really detect it. That’ll give the NNE exposure extra energy and it comes from that fetch indicated by the red arrow in the maps of Feb 3 and 4, conveniently collaged below.
