Sunday 6 25 17 morning call

Another fantastic day of surfing on the south shore yesterday. The conditions in Lahaina were pristine in the morning. I didn't see any 10's, but I saw a couple of 9's. These are some photos I took at Olowalu.

This little kid was catching the white water on the inside all by himself and deserves a photo.

The waves weren't the only beautiful thing out there.

More beauty.

And more beauty.

I'm selling this 7.7 single fin egg. This is the craigslist page with the ad. I priced it $250, but only for the blog readers and only today from 9 to 2, I'll sell it for $200. Come grab it at Hi-Tech if you want it. Epoxy and extremely light with a matching color fin. The bag is extra and optional.

3am significant buoy readings
South shore

2.5ft @ 13s from 136° (SE)
2.5ft @ 11s from 140° (SE)

2.9ft @ 13s from 133° (SE)                      
2.1ft @ 10s from 110° (ESE)
3.6ft @ 13s from 152° (SSE)                      
1.9ft @ 10s from 138° (SE)
Still energy from the south (the amount of east is impossible to quantify due to the influence of the windswell, but we know there's some if you remember the fetches). There will still be waves. Check the webcam and my early morning beach report for size and conditions update.

North shore
3.2ft @ 8s from 42° (NE)

Because of the high tide, Hookipa looked very small at sunset again, but this morning there should be some waves. The wind is calm at 4.30am and in the silence I heard a set breaking.

My friend who runs the Meteogram website couldn't stand the mega zoom of the map I posted yesterday (can't blame him, the thing was horrible) and offered his much better graphic version and the result is great. This is noon today and the only problem is that the prediction is 34 hours old. It's not automatically updated yet, but he's working on that. We'll see, in the meantime, it's sure a lot easier to read and it looks very promising.

North Pacific shows a couple of fetches, the most relevant of which is the NE one.

South Pacific shows some fetches too, the most relevant of which is the SSE one, with patches of 33 knots.

Classic trades sky again and another stunning day is on its way.
