8 30 15 morning call

Had a great windsurfing session yesterday at sunset. Very light wind and pretty much by myself with a couple of surfers. Loved it.

Didn't even bother going to check the waves this morning, since I knew the wind was going to be on it. We're gonna have a couple of days of onshores due to the pass of hurricane Ignacio.
Let's first have a look at where it is right now.

This is the wind map. That shows a small but intense east Ignacio fetch and a much larger one down south. Remember, that means a south swell next weekend.

According to the models, Ignacio should pass close enough for plenty rain, but not close enough for strong wind.
This is the map at Tuesday 2pm and it only shows 17 knots of local wind. But just a few hundred miles could make a big difference, so we'll know only when it gets there.

5.1ft @ 8s from 37° (NE)
4.2ft @ 13s from 264° (W)
2.4ft @ 6s from 49° (NE)
6ft @ 11s from 101° (ESE)
3.3ft @ 8s from 24° (NNE)
2.8ft @ 7s from 58° (ENE)
2.2ft @ 9s from 70° (ENE)

4.5ft @ 8s from 26° (NNE)
2.4ft @ 14s from 319° (NW)

3.4ft @ 13s from 224° (SW)           
1.5ft @ 5s from 132° (SE)
1.3ft @ 5s from 154° (SSE)
6f 11s from 101 at the North buoy from Ignacio, but that direction will only hit Hana for today.
West swell from Typhoon of Japan still incredibly there and Lahaina still gets waves. Considering how bad the wind is on the north shore, that's where I would go this morning, if I didn't have to work.

Winguru table shows the bad wind for the north shore until Wednesday when it's going to switch to Kona.
