Hey folks!
Heading to Maui next week and its my first time. Im going to be around Honolua Bay most of the time.
Im a pretty experience and knowledgeable surfer but I wanted to check if any of you know how accurate Surfline is forecasting Honolua Bay. I need to decide what quiver I bring.
Ill bring my Pyzalien as my to go board, from 3-7/8 ft (not Hawaiian), then either my StepUp in case Ill head up to Hookipa or if Honolua ever gets over 7ft. Or Ill bring a puddle jumper for soma small wave action along the Westside wherever theres a fun wave. I wanna keep it to 2 boards.
Surfline reports 4-5 most of the time but the forecasts is algorithm based so maybe theres someone who can give a bit of inside for waves sizes in that area. Id appreciate it a LOT!

Thanks !
Dennis

Ive never surfed outside Hanalei, the bowl or whatever, but every time Ive been and surfed Pine Trees or Waikokos they have been pretty accurate. In my experience they are often conservative, but occasionally get it wrong. After all, they are forecast most of these spots by looking at Cams, right?

Surfline calls it by wave face height which I agree with 100% because that is what I have to get over, under, or pitched off of mad

There are no Cams for Hanalei Bay anymore nor the Hanalei Pier since the big flood in April of 2018.
4 - 6 feet will be fun for Honolua, but when moving up to 6 - 8 feet, I hope you took a pintail for speed for getting by the Cave.
