Sunday 7 16 17 morning call

The longest day of work of the whole year (13 hours) is over and that will make me appreciate the other 364 days much more, reminding me how lucky I am to be able to afford my lifestyle with 4-5 hours work shifts 4-5 days a week (plus the occasional lessons).
The annual Hi-Tech sale was the usual success.

And since 99% of the 13 and 16 year olds in the world don't get to do the cool things that they do, I hope those two Maui kids (editor Dax Barker and athlete Jake Shcettewi ) know how lucky they are.

6am significant buoy readings
South shore

1.5ft @ 13s from 163° (SSE)

1.9ft @ 12s from 180° (S)

1.5ft @ 13s from 161° (SSE)

The predicted new small medium period southerly energy arrived and it shows at the outer buoys. More importantly, it also shows on the webcam and those guys are occasionally scoring a decent set.

North shore
3.9ft @ 7s from 24° (NNE)           
1.2ft @ 10s from 88° (E)
0.6ft @ 14s from 104° (ESE)
Windswell directions all over the place at the Pauwela buoy, too small to put any energy/time into investigating them.  

Wind map at noon shows windfoiling potential.

North Pacific only shows the windswell fetch and Fernanda getting closer. The longest periods of the easterly swell generated by this last one is predicted to start picking up throughout all day Tuesday and peak Wednesday with a solid 5f 14s from 100 degrees. If you want to start thinking where to go surf, I updated the epic post Buoys to Maui travel times and Maui's shadow lines with the shadow lines from that direction.

South Pacific shows a decently oriented and sized fetch, but lack of wind intensity.

A little cloudier than usual this morning. Still a stunning day for me.
