Tuesday 2 27 18 morning call

Just a longboard session for me yesterday morning, after a long search for suitable waves, I lucked out in a hour of no wind at an exposed spot. No photos of the day, here's an image from Ben Thouard.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for 0.5f 12s and that's what it looked like yesterday (see beach report I posted). Probably similar today in the knee high range.

North shore
9.5ft @ 11s from 85° (E)           
5.1ft @ 5s from 84° (E)

Plenty but only energy from the east and that's gonna be the case the whole week until Sunday.

Wind map at noon shows strong easterly trades.

North Pacific shows a NW fetch oriented towards the Marshalls of which we can only hope to get the angular spreading. That low is not going to move towards us and move north instead, as it's blocked by the very strong high pressure that is generating the current strong easterly trades.

South Pacific shows a couple of very small fetches. Next south pulse of some relevance will be Sat through Mon with 1.5f 14s.

Morning sky.
