Tuesday 3 27 18 morning call

Triple shortboard session for me yesterday. When the waves are good I surf, because the only thing I'm loyal to is the fun. Here's a few shots of the day.

Little grom overhead drop at the harbor.

Less little grom, but still grom and still well overhead at The Point at Sunset.

Browsinho at Lanes.

Uncle drop at Pavils.

The Point had some moments of awesomeness in the morning and at sunset.

Little cover up at Pavils.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

1.7ft @ 17s from 162° (SSE)

2.7ft @ 15s from 177° (S)

3.8ft @ 14s from 138° (SE)

Pretty solid southerly energy at the outer buoys, below is the collage of the maps of March 19, 20 and 21 to show you that there were two sources: one deep in the Tasman Sea and a low SSE of Tahiti.
There should hence be waves on the south shore, but the Kona wind will still blow them out today.

North shore
7.2ft @ 10s from 57° (ENE)

It's very refreshing to read only one swell at Pauwela, as it rarely happens. The number is quite higher than the Surfline forecast and even though the direction is more east than yesterday, Hookipa will still have waves this morning.

Wind map at noon. Still Konas.

North Pacific shows for the first time the NW fetch that will send us the weekend swell (7f 14s Saturday evening) and the E fetch.

South Pacific doesn't offer much, as the fetch in the map on the right will be completely blocked by New Zealand.

Morning sky.
