The call has been made, the Pe’ahi challenge will run on Sunday! Here’s what the Big Wave World Tour commissioner Pete Mel had to say today:
“We are green lit for Sunday, starting at 8:00 am. Shane Dorian, Ian Walsh and Makua Rothman are just three of the 24 competing. It’s exciting stuff, it’s going to be a little wild, we’ve got a bit of trade winds – you know what it’s like on maui – but it’s an ok direction and the the boys are psyched. We’re heading to Pe’ahi, and we’re going to ride some big waves.”
Surfline, official forecasters for the 2015/2016 WSL BWT season, are reporting: Very long period energy will be on the rise rapidly through the afternoon/evening hours on Saturday with sets up to 25-35’+ faces (15-18’ Hawaiian) by sundown. At this point we expect to see the swell peak in the pre dawn hours on Sunday (~2AM), with the strongest waves at Jaws at first light on Sunday in the 30-45’+ range on the face (20’+ Hawaiian), although gradually easing. The swell will ease further through the day, but should remain in the 25-35’+ range (15-18’+ Hawaiian) through mid afternoon.
