3 3 15 morning call

Gorgeous day of action yesterday.

Just to make sure to catch a bunch of uncrowded waves, I first surfed a spot close to where I live and then I decided to go surf the Bay. Of course it was crowded, but of course it was worth it.
Here's a shot from Jimmie Hepp that shows how much fun it was out there (other than the crowd).

These are a couple of shots I took.

Jimmie then went to Hookipa where the windsurfing was pretty radical. Here's Morgan.

Today the buoys are going down. To the left is the NW, to the right Pauwela.
I marked the peaks and tried to continue the maui graph to guess how small it's gonna get today. 4-5 feet around 12 seconds is a really fun size and I'm out of here as soon as I'm done with this. Expect a report from Hookipa soon.

Wind map shows fetches (even though not impressive ones) and that low right north of us should keep the trade wind speed kinda light. All the wind forecasting websites are calling for strengths like yesterday though. We'll see who's right. There will be some trades, that's for sure.

So it looks like another great day for ocean action today and while I'm typing this, a gorgeous sunrise is going off outside the window. What a place this is.
Here, let me say goodbye with a tail slap.

Have fun in the sun everyone!

Sick Video – here’s what the AWT had to say -

With strong north easterly winds blowing again, and a dwindling swell forecast, the call was made by head judge Chris Freeman to bring the pro riders back to ‘Little Ho’okipa’/’Secret Spot’. By midday, the lines of swell were starting to roll in. If a little smaller than yesterday, they still had enough power and size to send the pros back out and begin the countdown to the epic final.

And finally, it was on to the head to head of the Pro final, featuring previous world title holder Kauli Seadi and previous AWT overall champion Camille Juban. The heats were at this stage a longer duration, giving the riders a chance to wait outside for the larger set waves, and also to rake up a wave total of 10-15 waves per heat. This final was a showdown of 2 very different styles but very similar abilities. These guys are class acts and both had an arsenal of maneuvers to draw from. Kauli as usual rode his boards with his fluid, in-the-pocket tight style, and added some phenomenally technical goitres and aerials into the mix. Camille responded with his own unique power-house fluid style of wave riding with one of the highest, most critical goitres we saw all day. It was a genuine battle royale, and throughout the event it was anyone’s guess as to who took the win. But ultimately it came down to Camille Juban linking some amazing turns and maneuvers to take the win, with Kauli Seadi in second place!

Philip Köster has tasted the power of Japan's most iconic windsurfing spots. The two-time PWA Wave world champion spent a few days sailing in Omaezaki Long Beach and Kikugawa Point.

Köster was invited to the "Land of the Rising Sun" by a group of hardcore Japanese windsurfing enthusiasts. They wanted to watch and learn with the wave sailing master.

The German, 21, showed why he is one of the best performers in the world by sailing in starboard tack conditions. And what do you expect from Philip Köster? That's it - huge stalled forwards, double forwards, and a personal collection of freestyle maneuvers.
