11 22 14 morning call

4am main swell buoy readings:

Maui north shore (indicative of what's in the water on Maui's north shore)
3.7ft @ 9s from 85° (E)
3.4ft @ 11s from 322° (NW)

West lanai Maui north shore (indicative of what's in the water on Maui's south shore)
1.7ft @ 13s from 210° (SSW)
Pretty much the third very similar day in a row. Strong and gusty easterly wind with a background of 3-4f of swell from the NW.

Here's the graph of the Maui buoy that confirms that. What you want to look at is the light blue line
(the dark blue one is a windswell). So the call this morning is easy: it's gonna be just like the past couple of days!


Things are about to change though, both on the waves and wind sides.
New NW swell will arrive tomorrow (Sunday) and surfline is calling for 5f 14 from 333 at 8am, gradually increasing to 6.5 in the evening, 7 tomorrow and even 9 on Tuesday. Remember? We followed the evolution of the fetch in the past morning calls...

The wind is going to be favorable for surfing only tomorrow though (and I bet they'll run the contest at Honolua). Maybe also Monday morning, before turning straight North and ruining everything everywhere: stay tuned for that call.
Oh, yesterday I forgot to specify that the Hi-Tech Surf Bash contest is this morning at Pavils.

Have fun in the sun everyone!
