However west Maui tends to block some of the swell from this direction so Kanaha was getting maybe 12 ft in the bigger sets. Either way it was a lot of fun. I had a Go-Pro camera mounted on my boom and will be posting a video here real soon (just getting up to speed on editing videos).
After the Kanaha session we drove down to Hookipa to see what the big boys were up to. At first it didn't seem all that big. Then a huge set came in. Here are some shots I took during this set...
NWS surf forecast was right on.
GP's has a Hookipa post on this day with a lot more action shots.

Speaking of GP I saw him at lowers earlier in the day and if my second video ever gets finished I've got a few snippets of him going down the line when we were on the same wave.
