10 30 morning call

4am main swell buoy readings:
Maui north shore
6.1ft @ 9s from 358° (N)
West lanai
2.2ft @ 13s from 199° (SSW)

Yesterday everything went as I predicted and today it will be the same.
The AWT pro division will be completed. The top (not sure how many) riders will advance to the PWA contest, which, I believe, will start right after.
It's absolutely clear that these first 4 days are the best of the waiting period, that's why I'm so sure about that.

Anyway, there's 6f 9s from the North and I'll probably post a picture from Hookipa later.
South shore offers fun size too.

Below is the maui buoy graph that shows how quickly the waves picked up yesterday. Very close to the Surfline forecast I posted in yesterday's post.

This is the 2pm wind map (all the websites I use are listed and linked on the right) which shows why today should be another day full of action at the windsurfing contest.
The only threat is posed by that line of clouds that is approaching the islands and we all know how much the wind in Maui likes a sunny Haleakala. But the pressure gradient is there, so it's a matter of it's gonna blow 20 or 25 really...

Have fun in the sun everyone!
