25 5 15 morning call

South shore saw some action, as the photo by Jason Hall shows.

I surfed Maalaea after many years, and that wave is still too fast for me on the backhand. 10-15 yeards is the most I can travel. Three other guys out, one of which, on the forehand, was making all the waves to the channel.

4.5ft @ 15s from 278° (W)
3.6ft @ 7s from 21° (NNE)
3.5ft @ 10s from 48° (NE)
1.9ft @ 5s from 38° (NE)

5.9ft @ 10s from 5° (N)
1.5ft @ 6s from 7° (N)
1.3ft @ 16s from 313° (NW)
3.1ft @ 15s from 214° (SW)
1.2ft @ 13s from 205° (SSW)
Interesting 4.5f 15s from 278 reading at the NW buoy. No idea where that is coming from, but there's enough swells at the local buoys from both the north ( 6f 10s) and the south (3f 15s).
Wind is light, as the winguru table shows below, so no excuses. There's waves everywhere.

Wind map shows couple of fetches in the north pacific, but also a strong fetch down south and that's the strongest I've seen this season. Big swell next Monday.
