Thursday 3 29 18 morning call

Longboard and SUP foiling session for me yesterday in a day that saw excellent conditions both south and east thanks to the lack of wind. More of the same today.

This is an ass high wave in the afternoon at Thousand Peaks, but there were up to chest and occasionally even head high ones.

We received a bunch of Gofoil foils at Hi-Tech, all kind of singles and combos.

3-4am significant buoy readings
South shore
3.1ft @ 12s from 137° (SE)

3.1ft @ 12s from 177° (S)

Period going down at the outer buoys, but size still pretty solid. Waves on the south shore also today.

North shore
5.5ft @ 9s from 77° (ENE)

East swell down one second too, but also today there will be waves on the east facing shores and pristine conditions in the early morning.

Wind map at noon shows light onshores on the north shore, but once again the morning should be calm.

Here in fact is the map at 7am. I had to post it as I'm becoming a huge fan of the color purple. It means glassy. This model is the link n.-2 of the GP's meteo website list. You click on the animation of the second column and get the evolution hour by hour.

North Pacific shows the the NW fetch getting smaller (but the weekend NW swell is on its way) and unfortunately no more east fetch.

South Pacific shows a small fetch.

Morning sky. Looks like another glorious day.
