12 16 15 morning call

I took this photo yesterday morning at Hookipa. Windswell looked allright.

Pretty big numbers at the buoys. The show at Pipeline should be intense, below is a webcam snap at 7am.

At 3am Pauwela reads
6.7ft @ 18s from 332° (NNW)
6.5ft @ 10s from 84° (E)
5.6ft @ 7s from 75° (ENE)
Too bad today is going to be real windy, otherwise that would be Jaws stuff.
I'm sure some windsurfer/kiter will tackle it. Just make sure to bend your legs you guys when you're dropping on a 30 feet bomb and have to negotiate the chop. 6f 10s is a pretty serious windswell.
As far as surfing goes, due to the strong wind, the only possible call today is the west side.

Below the graph of NW, Waimea and Pauwela. NW peaked around sundown yesterday and stayed steady size wise (lost a couple of seconds in the period), so expect the swell to peak in the early morning both in Oahu and Maui and stay elevated throughout all day.

Wind map shows a decent fetch NNW of us mostly shooting at the west coast, and the usual windswell fetch.

MC2km map at noon shows the wind that it shows.
