29 5 15 morning call

Fantastic day of surfing on the south shore. It was glassy all day till 3 when a little onshore wind picked up, but it was still good. Even Hookipa looked clean at sunset.

This was my facebook post celebrating the morning's bliss.

That's how clear the water was.

This is a little clip of a wave that I told Marina to drop in and ride. She's not too bad to look at.

Took some photos at Olowalu in between sessions.

This did not end up well.

2.1ft @ 10s from 10° (N)
1.8ft @ 8s from 44° (NE)
1.5ft @ 15s from 184° (S)
1.4ft @ 13s from 156° (SSE)
3.1ft @ 8s from 42° (NE)           
1.8ft @ 11s from 343° (NNW)

1.9ft @ 13s from 178° (S)
1.5ft @ 16s from 202° (SSW)

Still something on the south shore, and that's where I'm going this morning too. Couple of feet at Hookipa too.
What's been magic for this wonderful south swell is the lack of wind. If the trade winds are up, the onshores on the Lahaina side pick up earlier and stronger. They are going to be back soon, but not that soon.
Wind map shows the fetch down south. It has moved east of New Zealand, but it's still shooting mostly north to south, so it's still good for us. Next week should be good too.
