A SUP foiling (9 in the fun scale) and a shortboard session for me yesterday. Here's some picture of Hookipa at sunset, you can see in the background the texture left by the light onshore wind that pretty much blew all day.
But there were some clean faces too.
4am significant buoy readings
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for 1.2f 14s. Yesterday it was still knee to waist, today could be a tad smaller before a new pulse picks up tomorrow.
4.8ft @ 9s from 9° (N)
Pauwela has not been hit by that raw energy just yet, so it "just" show a solid 6.3f 13s from 322 from yesterday's swell. Below are the graphs of the two reported buoys, let's dig into them.
So how big are the waves going to be today after all that? I can't tell you that, because it depends on the break you go! Plus, what counts the most IMO, is the wind conditions, which we talk about next.
Wind map at noon shows the worse possible wind for the north: NW. No escape from that one and it should blow all day, as you can see from the other maps of the model linked at link n. -2.
