8 26 15 morning call


There were waves on the Lahaina and Kihei side yesterday and there will be more waves tomorrow, possible bigger judging from the webcams below.

Those waves were generated by the typhoon off Japan. You can see the 13s at the buoys.
4.2ft @ 8s from 196° (SSW)
3.3ft @ 14s from 275° (W)
1.1ft @ 7s from 151° (SSE)

1.8ft @ 8s from 63° (ENE)
1ft @ 13s from 311° (NW)
3.6ft @ 13s from 229° (SW)
2.6ft @ 7s from 191° (SSW)
1.2ft @ 4s from 162° (SSE)
Couple of fetches on today's wind map. 
Next storm still forecasted to stall right on top of the islands around Sept 1st. Stay tuned for updates.
The hurricane to the right should swing north instead and provide plenty waves from the east.
All these storms will not allow the "normal" trade winds generating high pressure to sit in place hence no trades for another long while, as the windguru table shows below.

I've been out of the water for 9 days to heal an inflamed cyst, it's finally time to get wet again for me.
I don't know how I managed to stay sane. Maybe I didn't.
