Saturday 1 27 18 morning call

A longboard and a SUP foiling session for me yesterday, both extremely fun thanks to the extremely clean conditions due to the lack of wind.

Local photographer Dayanidhi Das is featured in this article on Surfline, from which I grabbed this one of Kody Young.

My day was very busy (and pleasant) and the only time I had to pull out the camera was well after the sun went over the West Maui's. Hence, this photo of Hookipa is not quite as sharp as Dayanidhi's, but it shows the fun size.

5-6am significant buoy readings
South shore

No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for a minimal 0.6f 9s. Yesterday it was knee high in Lahaina, probably today even smaller. But a small long period bump should arrive tomorrow.

North shore
5.1ft @ 10s from 100° (E)
4.1ft @ 12s from 4° (N)
2.2ft @ 15s from 315° (NW)

1.4ft @ 18s from 314° (NW)

3.1ft @ 13s from 1° (N)
2.2ft @ 11s from 317° (NW)
1.9ft @ 10s from 330° (NW)
1.4ft @ 18s from 316° (NW)

5.6ft @ 10s from 74° (ENE)
3.6ft @ 13s from 356° (N)
0.8ft @ 20s from 319° (NW)

Buoy readings reflect the multiple fetches we observed in the last few days. Today on tap there is:
- a low but very long period NW swell
- a lovely 3.6f 13s period N swell
- a 10s easterly swell today smaller than yesterday at 5.6f

Plenty to choose from and with very clean conditions everywhere.

Wind map at noon shows very light breezes. Should be another balmy one, but with a cold start.

North Pacific shows again fetches from W, N (pretty good one) and E.

South Pacific has nothing to offer.

Morning sky.
