Tuesday 3 6 18 morning call

Shortboard, longboard and windsurf sessions for me yesterday. I also found the time to snatch these couple of photos to illustrate the lovely clean conditions on the Lahaina side.

Auntie puts it on the rail.

This photo of Jimmie Hepp from this gallery shows the fun sailing conditions at Hookipa.

The Surfline buoys page (link n.11) has no data other than the NW101, so we go mostly by the forecast today. For the South shore, they call 0.7f 15s.

North shore
6.2ft @ 14s from 9° (N)

Here's a sentence from Pat Caldwell's post yesterday: Long periods swell events from the NW and N are predicted for Tuesday. The latter should be larger.

The buoy reading seems to confirm that. Below is the collage of the maps of March 2,3,4 and 5. You can see how the vicinity of the northerly fetch will be an important factor.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific shows that the same NNE fetch in the last map of the collage above didn't move much. Steady 7f 11s from around 25 degrees predicted by Surfline for Thu, Fri,Sat

South Pacific doesn't show anything of relevance.

Morning sky.
