This video with some amazing waves from Jan 23rd at Jaws just came out.
The first half of January has shown us how bad a winter in Hawaii can be. The second is showing us how good it can be. Waves every day, easterly trades that allow for clean surfing conditions in the morning and wind sports in the afternoon and then surfing again at sunset, with overall extremely pleasant weather and temperatures. And the best feels even better when experienced right after the worst!
This is my pick of Jimmie Hepp’s album of yesterday’s windsurfing action at Hookipa.

I heard there were waves on the Lahaina side yesterday, I was too busy between sessions on the north shore to even check out the webcam, please do so if you’re interested to see what’s there.
