4th post in a row that I start with some kite stuff, don’t get used. How’s the control this guy has?
4am significant buoy readings
1.3ft @ 12s from 188° (S)
1.4ft @ 12s from 172° (S)
Well, I was lucky enough to catch that same exact wave on the Lahaina webcam and here’s how it looks after 4-5 days of extra travel and lots of energy lost while going around islands and reefs on the way. Just kidding of course, but the fact remains that it’s very small and the long period sets ridiculously inconsistent. Check the webcam yourself.
4.2ft @ 8s from 77° (ENE)
Pure and relatively small windswell at the buoy, Hookipa is going to be close to flat, better size could be found on the east facing shores. Overall, another great day to rest.
NW fetch looks a little better today, but not as strong as it looked on May 31st, the first time I pointed out to you guys. That’s yet another proof to never get too excited for things that haven’t happened yet. Barely 30 knots and not particularly big, might not be overhead, but I still call for head high sets at Hookipa on Sunday, as it’s not too far away.
