7 4 15 morning call

Just a quick early morning sesh at Pavils for me yesterday and then a full day of work.
I don't mind working when the office looks like this... weather was absolutely gorgeous yesterday (photo by Jimmie Hepp).

BTW, HST is looking for instructors. Here's their fb post:
Want to call Kanaha your office? HST is accepting applications for instructor positions - windsurfing and/or kitesurfing. Please email your resume to info@hstwindsurfing.com or call us at 808)871-5423.


I don't mind working also when it means taking care of the details for a photoshoot like this! This old photo popped out on facebook again and I'd like to thank Frankie again for calling me for help that day!

Buoys (only the significant swells):
NW: 4ft @ 11s from 338° (NNW)
Waimea: 2ft @ 13s from 317° (NW)
Pauwela: 4.9ft @ 9s from 67° (ENE)
1.8ft @ 14s from 320° (NW)
Lanai: 1.4ft @ 14s from 235° (WSW)
0.9ft @ 11s from 210° (SSW)

Do I have to comment on the buoys all the times? Did you guys learn how to read them yet?
Here we go: 5f 9s windswell will make chest to head high waves at pavils and the point.
When a set of the 2f14s NW ground swell will squeeze in, there will be a more clear line (probably still head high) that will have a bunch of windswell subpeaks in it. The wind will be on it and it's gonna be average conditions, but good workout no matter what.
You learn how to read the buoys, you need no webcam, no beach report, no mauisurfreport blog anymore.

Wind map today looks pretty bad with some scattered insignificant fetches here and there.

A much much more exciting situation will pan out around NEXT Tuesday. Check the weather map below. I can read the number 960 in the middle of that winter caliber storm and that's a hell of a low.
Surfline calls for 11f 15s on Friday 17, but those are always over estimated. For sure, there will be a last winter whiplash. All the springtime vacationers will be stoked, because they will have the chance to see the big Hawaiian waves, Jaws included.
Hey, that's a forecast, things can change.

Today's wind map at noon shows the usual strong trades.
