Not sure it's the new swell, since I haven't seen many readings over 20s, but there was a lot of energy in the water. I got a feeling Maui is getting more energy than Oahu these days.
This is at Oluwalu at sunset. Again, Breakwall was much bigger.
3.3ft @ 6s from 50° (NE)
2.6ft @ 8s from 43° (NE)
1.2ft @ 10s from 345° (NNW)
0.5ft @ 16s from 46° (NE)
2.6ft @ 17s from 176° (S)
1.4ft @ 14s from 184° (S)
3.1ft @ 17s from 184° (S)
4.9ft @ 17s from 184° (S)
New or old, 5f 17s at the SW buoy is a solid reading, so the south shore will be the place to be.
Where exactly, that's up to you. Surfline is still indicating Monday as the biggest day.
Trades should be light and windguru also indicates a lot of clouds (I like that, less sunscreen and wind). But I didn't see many in the satellite picture.
Wind map shows no fetches pointing towards Hawaii today, the one I circled is shooting at south America.
It might get flat at one point, but there'll be waves on the south shore all next week. And after that, small to flat sunday/Monday but then there will be another SW swell since a new fetch is about to form in the tasman sea where I put an X.
