I want to thank all of the Hawaii Weather Today surf report team for all those years of reporting on the TV weather show…which is now finished: Ole Olson on Kauai; Kaleo Ohina, Ian Masterson and Kyle Stanford on Oahu; Steven Mark, Mike Napier, Ken Potts and Ron Busby on Maui…and finally David Hume on the Big Island. Thanks to Mr. Pat Caldwell on Oahu for his continuing excellent surf forecast skills. ~~~ Steven Mark and Mike Napier continue to send me daily surf reports for Hookipa Beach Park, and the Kihei area here on Maui.
