Sunday 2 18 18 morning call

A longboard and a SUP foiling session for me yesterday. I don't have a photo of the day, this is one of those mesmerizing photos from Tahiti by Ben Thouard. Teahupoo must be the thickest wave in the world.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for a very temporary 0.7f 12s but only in the afternoon.

North shore
4.3ft @ 12s from 335° (NNW)

5.9ft @ 12s from 316° (NW)

4.8ft @ 8s from 68° (ENE)
3.7ft @ 12s from 328° (NW)

New NW bump is on the rise locally, the Waimea reading suggests an increase in Maui throughout the day maybe slightly bigger than the Surfline forecast that calls for 4f 12s in the afternoon. Easterly swell slightly smaller than yesterday.

Wind map at noon shows ESE trades.

North Pacific shows a fairly strong WNW fetch and the close by E windswell one.

South Pacific shows a nice and wide Tasman Sea fetch. Surfline predictes a 0.5f swell from it.

Morning sky shows plenty clouds.
