This is Marlon Lewis who, seen the small size, went out on his foiled shortboard.
Almost riding with no swell.
Sorry if I couldn't post an update with the decreased size later in the morning, but I was busy with my surf guide customer who I decided to take somewhere else: here.
That's her enjoying a lovely back hand blue water (as opposed to white) ride.
4am significant buoy readings
2.7ft @ 15s from 290° (WNW)
4.9ft @ 15s from 271° (W)
New WNW swell on the rise, Kihei side should get waves. Check the webcams.
9.5ft @ 13s from 290° (WNW)
3.3ft @ 9s from 80° (E)
HRW model on Windguru shows a day of light wind that should start with a light southerly flow. MC2km map didn't get updated yesterday, and I guess they won't get updated today because it's Sunday and Woodie goes to church...
Seriously, the updates of those maps are so unreliable and inconsistent that it really seems they require a human intervention. Which is unthinkable of.
Anyway, iWindsurf 5.30am reading at Hookipa is 6mph from the south, so conditions should be very clean.
Current wind map shows:
1) a close NW fetch
2) a weak windswell fetch
PS. I did some significant updates to the old NW buoy travel times, which is now called (and available in the labels section for future references) Buoys to Maui travel times and Maui's shadow lines
All the major buoys travel times and all major shadow angles are calculated and illustrated there.
