This is Nikki Van Dijk in a photo from Jimmie Hepp.
Below the graph of three buoys at 6am.
I put a red line on what was the peak of the swell. Traveling times according to tables and size decay according to mother nature.
I put a second red line on the NW buoy graph to show how the swell steadily declined in those 18h after the peak before stabilizing again around 6f (but with the period still declining).
6.0ft @ 9s from 70° (ENE)
Surfline forecast for Wednesday calls for 10f 15s out of 330 and that is a MUCH BETTER direction. I really hope they'll wait.
I ran the whole 2 weeks of the model and I counted at least 5 storms following each other off mainland Asia. 3-4 days of big waves, spaced by 2-3 days of smaller waves, that's the beautiful regime that will last for the first half of December.
Unfortunately the trades will ruin most of them, but wind/kitesurfers will be happy.
MC2km map at noon shows the wind that it shows.
