Aloha Classic Up and Running- watch Live

The 2014 Aloha Classic is live and kicking! Day one got off to an amazing start seeing some of the best blast through the first round of the AWT Pro Division- Who was ripping? As a spectator for this year, I was impressed with the “Regulars” but my head spun a couple times watching Marcilio Brown, Levi Siver, Morgan Noireaux, Keith Teboul and of course my brother Kevin- These guys showed they mean business, things are really gonna heat up today. If I was a betting man I would see the semi final setting up like this-  Levi, Marcillio, Pritchard, Polakow. If you aren’t able to sit on the beach to witness history being made, WATCH IT NOW!

Here are some of my favorite shots of Day 1 brought to you from the good people at FISH BOWL DIARIES! For more, check their Facebook page and be sure to comment on your favorites!

10 30 morning call

4am main swell buoy readings:
       
Maui north shore
6.1ft @ 9s from 358° (N)

          
West lanai
2.2ft @ 13s from 199° (SSW)

Yesterday everything went as I predicted and today it will be the same.
The AWT pro division will be completed. The top (not sure how many) riders will advance to the PWA contest, which, I believe, will start right after.
It's absolutely clear that these first 4 days are the best of the waiting period, that's why I'm so sure about that.

Anyway, there's 6f 9s from the North and I'll probably post a picture from Hookipa later.
South shore offers fun size too.

Below is the maui buoy graph that shows how quickly the waves picked up yesterday. Very close to the Surfline forecast I posted in yesterday's post.

This is the 2pm wind map (all the websites I use are listed and linked on the right) which shows why today should be another day full of action at the windsurfing contest.

 
 
 
The only threat is posed by that line of clouds that is approaching the islands and we all know how much the wind in Maui likes a sunny Haleakala. But the pressure gradient is there, so it's a matter of it's gonna blow 20 or 25 really...
 

Have fun in the sun everyone!
