10 6 15 morning call

Only one surf session at Hookipa for me yesterday, that's what I call a day of relative rest.

6.6ft @ 7s from 21° (NNE)
3.5ft @ 12s from 321° (NW)
2.1ft @ 9s from 290° (WNW)
1.9ft @ 6s from 312° (NW)
1.8ft @ 12s from 283° (WNW)
1.7ft @ 14s from 202° (SSW)
Only windswell at the Pauwela buoy, but what counts more is that the wind will be onshore on the north shore and it's gonna be like that for the next few days as the windguru tables show.

Let's focus on the south shore then.
The graph of the Barbers Point buoy shows some long period readings in the last 24 hours.
That means that on top of that 1.7ft @ 14s from 202° (SSW) there's also less than a foot at 20-18 seconds. I'm going south this morning, there's no other alternative, really. I'll try to post a report when I get there, but don't forget the lahaina webcam that I linked in the webcams sections on the right column of this blog.

Quite a few fetches on the wind map. The one SE of New Zealand that was good yesterday has now turned towards the Americas, but it will go back to aiming waves our way tomorrow. So, more south swells next week. Enjoy your day, make the most of it.
