9 0 15 morning call

Plenty action on the north shore yesterday.
Both surfers and windsurfers had their fair share, since the windswell waves got a bit more organized.

Photo below from Jimmie Hepp shows that. Still short period, but more defined sets. Sailor is Colin Baker.

5.6ft @ 8s from 50° (NE)
5ft @ 9s from 47° (NE)
3.8ft @ 11s from 44° (NE)
3.2ft @ 7s from 137° (SE)           
1.4ft @ 13s from 193° (SSW)
1.1ft @ 18s from 198° (SSW)

Windswell kinda steady. I like the "new" 11s component, probably from the very back of the fetch. But it is gonna be smaller tomorrow, so don't waste it today.

Windy, but not as windy as yesterday. MC2km map below is at noon.

Hey, that's a proper N fetch! That is going to bring us a N swell on Sunday/Monday. The wind will do interesting things, but it's too early to talk about it.
The NW fetch is not gonna do much, since it's rapidly going to move behind the Aleutians.
