Sunday 2 12 17 morning call

I didn't surf yesterday, even though there were ample opportunity for good (or even epic) sessions.

Take Lanes at sunset, for example. This is Browsinho, one of the very skilled windsurfers I was referring to in yesterday's call, showing a perfect timing on a solid logo high one with Ross Williams observing in the background.

Soon after, the wind really dropped and it looked perfect for surfing, but I didn't go out because... I don't like to put my wetsuit on in the rain. What a pussy.

5am significant buoy readings
South shore still blown out by the Kona, check the webcams.

North shore
5.6ft @ 14s from 289° (WNW)
3.6ft @ 10s from 338° (NNW)

5.2ft @ 14s from 320° (NW)

3.9ft @ 14s from 324° (NW)
1.9ft @ 11s from 12° (NNE)
Nice manageable sizes at the buoys. Below is the graph of NW101 and Pauwela that shows that the swell should hold pretty steady. Those couple of feet of difference between the two buoys is mostly due to the swell's westerly direction (still around 290, lots of refraction needed) and a little to the travelling.

Also notice those couple of feet 11s from 12 at Pauwela. That's the swell generated by the last days of that low responsible for the massive 12f 16s NNE swell of two weeks ago that moved up in the gulf of Alaska. A die hard one, I'd say.
Current wind map shows:
1) the very long WNW fetch that we have observed in the last few days starting from Japan and now getting very close to us. It will bring more Kona and another front. The usual cycle.
2) a small N fetch
I didn't receive any flash flood warnings on my phone, but the rain was intense indeed. I think Oahu got hammered much more. It's all clear now, but only temporarily. As you can see, the front n.1 has passed us (today should be a pretty gorgeous day, with an extremely clear air... photographers better get on it!), but n.2 is right behind.

The usual cycle I said and in the Windguru table below we can see the switch of the wind forecasted for Wednesday. Notice also the massive swell that instead will peak on Tuesday. This swell will end a series of WNW swells generated lows following by a very low jet stream. After a few days of lovely indecision on what to do, the pressure distribution will temporarily go back to a trades generating pattern.

I also circled Sunday 19 because the wind will be strong and onshore and on that day I plan on doing my first liver and gallbladder flush. Check out this article if you're interested in what it is. Read it all first (it's very short) and then watch the video of the cute girl that talks to you while doing an enema, it'll be more clear. And if you want to get more into it, just google Andreas Moritz, the author of The amazing liver and gallbladder flush. It's an incredible book that will turn your opinion of western medicine upside down. I strongly recommend it. And of course, I'll update you guys with the results of the flush. Many friends have done it already and they ALL flushed lots of stones.

I'm a bit late this morning, and that usually means that the MC2km maps are updated. This is the 7am one that shows light to moderate Kona (sensor is reading 9mph at Hookipa at 6.20am), that should provide for another day of really good conditions. Sorry if I didn't manage to post the usual beach update, this morning there will be one for sure before 8am.
The noon map doesn't look that much different. Windsurfing might happen in the afternoon, a it might require and slightly less amount of skill, due to the slightly smaller waves. But still a very hard kind of windsurfing. I'm talking on the north shore, of course.
