11 23 14 morning call

4am main swell buoy readings:
6.1ft @ 13s from 326° (NW)
4.9ft @ 10s from 6° (N)

Maui north shore (indicative of what's in the water on Maui's north shore)
5.4ft @ 9s from 82° (E)           
3.8ft @ 11s from 330° (NW)
0.7ft @ 4s from 78° (ENE)

West lanai Maui north shore (indicative of what's in the water on Maui's south shore)
    1.6ft @ 11s from 265° (W)
0.9ft @ 7s from 193° (SSW)
0.9ft @ 15s from 228° (SW)

0.8ft @ 5s from 201° (SSW)

As usual, let's start with analyzing the buoy readings.
NW reads 6f 1s from 326. Maui (and Waimea) don't show any sign of that yet.
Even though not particularly clear, the graph of the NW buoy show a steep rise around midnight. (connect that red dot at 13s with the last piece of dark blue line at 12s).
Once again, I'm hence going to predict a steep rise of the swell in Maui in the afternoon.
But there's still almost 4f 11s (just like the past 3-4 days), so it's gonna be fun all day.

Also because the wind will be good all day, as the wind map below shows. Beautiful SE direction, sideoff at Hookipa, straight offshore at Honolua, which will be completely flat in the early morning. I wonder if they keep the girls on hold all day waiting for the swell to show up in the afternoon.
Too bad, I was getting used at surfing with Sally... "surfing with Sally, better than surfing with Kelly", I spoke yesterday. The reasons for that are obvious.

Have fun in the sun everyone!

PS. This morning call is dedicated to Steve, who entered the big 6 in top shape. Thanks again brother, there was such a good energy up there!
PPS. I'm getting totally annoyed by these virus audio ads in the background. Microsoft SE, Malwarebytes and Tdsskiller by Kaspersky didn't work. Any suggestions from the readers?
