8 24 15 morning call

Plenty rain during the night and this morning in Maui.
The satellite photo and the radar below show that.



3.7ft @ 9s from 111° (ESE)
3.4ft @ 12s from 237° (WSW)
2.6ft @ 8s from 117° (ESE)

3.3ft @ 9s from 55° (ENE)
2.4ft @ 6s from 81° (E)

2.7ft @ 13s from 242° (WSW)
2.1ft @ 7s from 173° (S)
1.4ft @ 9s from 191° (SSW)
0.6ft @ 5s from 168° (SSE)

Still some energy from the WSW at the NW and Barbers buoy, but that's not hitting the Pauwela and the north shore which still only has windswell.
The webcam below shows a bit of shore break in Kihei, but nothing substantial. Overall, another day with not much on offer. Better days will come.


On the windmap, the usual tight WNW fetch. That is still too west to hit Hookipa straight, but a little bit of energy might wrap around the upstream islands.
Screenshot below is from Saturday Sept 2nd, so it's higly unreliable, but it shows an interesting situation with yet another hurricane effecting the islands (the one to the left is the actual storm that is creating the rain right now). Surfline is calling for 20f 12s from ENE, but, as I said, that is extremely unreliable. We'll keep an eye on that.
In the meantime, enjoy a rainy day on Maui. Tahiti contest on at 11.45am. Enjoy the show.
