Friday 6 29 18 morning call

A shortboard session for me yesterday. The waves on the south side were really good, but I got no photos of the day, here's one of those crazy images from Clark Little.

2am significant buoy readings
South shore

3.3ft @ 13s from 140° (SE)

3.9ft @ 13s from 162° (SSE)

4.1ft @ 12s from 155° (SSE)

3.2ft @ 15s from 181° (S)

South swell peaked yesterday and now it's down a second. Barbers still reads 15s, while the outer buoys read 12-13, I don't know how to explain this. But as long as there's waves, I don't particularly care. Beach report sometimes in the morning, but it should be still waist to chest at least.

North shore
6.2ft @ 9s from 63° (ENE)

Windswell still up even though it's now predicted to start declining. Should still be plenty waves at Hookipa.

I'm posting really early, so that's why the model hasn't updated yet. This wind map at noon is more than a day old.

A small/weak WNW fetch and the windswell fetch in the North Pacific today.

Solid fetch east of New Zealand. Decent swell for next weekend. The south swell season continues to provide.

Morning sky.
