5 24 17 morning call

Three sessions with three different boards is my yesterday's booty. That's the only booty I can offer you today, but I took some photos to show you the pretty conditions of the Lahaina side coast.

Plenty colors in this one.

This nose rider lady had such grace in her cross steps. Here she's moving forward.


And walking back.

There were some gems.

Showing some possess (or however that thing that Potts says is spelled).

Jason Hall doing his dolphin technique.

With success.

Sorry, that's yesterday's dinner. The reason I post food/nutrition stuff here is to inspire the readers to move towards the scientifically proven healthiest diet for a human being: unprocessed whole plants. Needless to say, it was delicious.

5am significant buoy readings
South shore

2.6ft @ 14s from 123° (ESE)

NW energy going down and all of a sudden the southerly one reappears at the W buoy. It didn't go anywhere, it was just shadowed by the stronger NW and the buoys couldn't detect it. Those numbers are totally solid and the first set I saw on the Lahaina webcam was head high. Here it is, I snapped it a little late, but you can judge from the white water. I'm absolutely loving this swell, since, unlike the upcoming weekend one, is not a "conclamated" one. That means that not many people know about it, because it wasn't announced/hyped by the news and other low quality forecast sources.

North shore
5.9ft @ 8s from 21° (NNE)           
4.4ft @ 11s from 332° (NNW)

Northerly energy winding down in period and turning more and more towards the east, but still plenty at the Pauwela buoys for another day of waves on the north shore. At sunset yesterday they were big enough to buckle my favorite board. Hookipa sensor reading 8(5-14)mph from the east, I might go have a look just to kill some time to pass the crazy low tide before driving to Lahaina once again.

Wind map at 2pm shows trades in the usual 21-24mph range.

It takes me a stupid amount of time to put them together, but it makes sense to have the North and South Pacific wind and fetches maps together. I'm gonna try to do this from now on, please leave feedbacks if you have any.
North Pacific current wind and fetches maps show a couple of small NNE/NE fetches.

South Pacific current wind and fetches maps show a couple of very distant small fetches. Nothing like the past few days though.

Morning sky looks very clear.
