12 30 15 morning call

You take the wind out of the equation and Maui becomes a good place for surfing.

Yesterday there were waves everywhere: east, north, south and west and they were all glassy. At least in the morning.
These is blog reader Juan Ricci enjoying a northerly exposure.

This photo instead is from the day before (Monday) at Honolua Bay. Surfer grom Jackson Bunch, photo be OneMore Foto

Buoys 4am
3.9ft @ 10s from 79° (ENE)
3.3ft @ 7s from 328° (NW)
3.3ft @ 12s from 125° (ESE)
3.1ft @ 7s from 356° (N)

3.3ft @ 11s from 358° (N)
2ft @ 5s from 331° (NNW)
1.9ft @ 9s from 39° (NE)

5.8ft @ 10s from 85° (E)

2.5ft @ 12s from 246° (WSW)
1.3ft @ 4s from 310° (WNW)
1.1ft @ 16s from 195° (SSW)
0.9ft @ 5s from 239° (WSW)
All the buoys and all the swells are trending down. Pauwela only reads the windswell, but I swear I heard a long period set breaking when I woke up. The light will bring... light.
Today is a transition day with small waves and bad wind before a new solid NW swell hits tomorrow. Take a rest if you are surfed out from yesterday.
Wind map shows a pretty massive NW fetch. Unfortunately today we are in the middle of a northerly flow that will make the conditions less than ideal.

Satellite pic at 6.30am shows a weak front crossing over Maui. That'll bring some rain, NE wind and some cold air.

MC2km map at 1pm shows the NE wind.

Lastly, here's my brick shaped foam boobs. The thing works perfectly on a longboard. I have zero pressure on my injured lower ribs. I don't even have to arch my back, I might have to make a permanent fixture out of it...
