9 6 16 morning call

Double Lahaina surf session for me yesterday (nice waves, but painfully slow). I don't have an action shot, here's four boards of the extremely wide rental fleet of Hi-Tech. You can imagine how stoked those customers were to find such quality funboard boards available for rent.

Buoy readings 4am
5.4ft @ 8s from 85° (E)
0.9ft @ 12s from 336° (NNW)
Still some windswell on the north shore, but pretty easterly (small stuff at Hookipa). The NNW reading is from that weak fetch I highlighted the past couple of days. It's gonna be barely noticeable.

2.4ft @ 17s from 202° (SSW)
1.8ft @ 7s from 174° (S)
0.7ft @ 11s from 193° (SSW)
0.6ft @ 13s from 189° (S)
Much more noticeable will be those 2.4f 17s at the Lanai buoy. Yesterday at sunset the webcam showed some solid shoulder high sets, could be even bigger today. Stay tuned for the beach reports.
MC2km map at noon shows some trades on the north shore, but fortunately not particularly strong. The whole next 10 days on the Windguru table seem to have light trades and that is great, because hopefully thanks to that there will be clean conditions the whole morning on the south shore. Stronger trades cause stronger onshores over there most times in fact.
Wind map shows the usual windswell fetch (which I forgot to circle) and a couple of fetches down south. Still nothing from the usual NW corner, but...

...here's the map of Sept 10 that shows one. Actually it shows two, the one on the left getting strong on...

... Sept 13 (map below). The two resulting NW swell are forecasted by Surfline to both peak at 5f 12s on Wednesday the 14th and Friday the 16th respectively.
