Great site! Shows wind (at different altitudes too), swell, temp, etc

Oh, wow, good point - I'd heard there were some hurricanes in the pacific but I hadn't realized they were close to Hawaii.

Will El Nino influence Baldwin Beach and other Hawaiian beaches?  NE trade winds may relax, but there may be an increased chance of storm influence.
El Nino years are a reason for concern for possible tropical storm and hurricane strikes on Hawaii.

The Hololani Resort uses sandbags in January to prevent erosion of its property in Kahana. While 85 percent of Maui’s shorelines have problems with long-term erosion, Kahana is particularly bad, losing more than half a foot a year. Maui County is soliciting bids from consultants for a feasibility study of using sand nourishment as a way to reduce shoreline erosion in Kahana.

Very cool photos! They really make the point about how quickly the sand can move around.

Current erosion at Baldwin Beach Cove. This area is in an erosion hot spot down wind from the rock revetment that had been built to protect a kiln from erosion. Large volumes of beach sand used to be mined and baked in the kiln to make lime for the sugar cane fields

WNW swell from Former Typhoon Atsani.  Waves at low tide breaking over shallow area near exposed beach rock.  Waves converging on both sides of sand point "salient'
