4 19 15 morning call

Shooting Pavils from the point requires some zoom. I like the chick that went left and is checking how the right was... shoulda kept going!

The wind was brutally stong all day (so they told me) but windsurfing at sunset looked quite fun actually. Unfortunately I can't sail these days trying to heal that finger. Alex Mussolini seems not to have any issues instead.

Buoy readings are quite enigmatic today.
5.7ft @ 9s from 84° (E)
1.9ft @ 6s from 90° (E)
1.5ft @ 17s from 162° (SSE)

5.1ft @ 8s from 39° (NE)           
1.6ft @ 3s from 36° (NE)
0.6ft @ 18s from 6° (N)

6.5ft @ 9s from 83° (E)
5.2ft @ 8s from 73° (ENE)
0.3ft @ 18s from 39° (NE)

A new moderate NW swell is supposed to pick up during the day, but with no NW readings on any of the buoy (specially the NW one, of course), I'm not calling that. Overall, it seems all about the windswell on the north shore today.

2.2ft @ 7s from 178° (S)
1.2ft @ 6s from 166° (SSE)
1ft @ 10s from 241° (WSW)
0.8ft @ 12s from 191° (SSW)

Also the south swell hasn't showed up yet. There is a comforting half footish reading at 18s earlier on the Lanai buoy graph below, but considering the afternoon high tide and usual unshore flow, the day is tomorrow really.

Wind map shows still a weak fetch down under. That is gonna be a very long lasting swell... whenever it arrives. Small fetches also up north, but nothing major.

MC2km at noon shows the usual strong wind.
