Monday 6 4 17 morning call

No local action to report from yesterday, as the red eye flight took a bit of a toll on me. Gonna start the call with a photo of Cloudbreak from yesterday from the Namotu FB page.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
3.1ft @ 15s from 172° (S)

3.9ft @ 14s from 161° (SSE)

4.1ft @ 15s from 168° (SSE)

Solid readings at the buoys, the south shore will have waves in a range that I will guess  at least chest to head high from home on the Lahaina side. You never really know the amount of energy that Kahoolawe will block, specially without a reliable indication of the direction of the swell.

I have no idea of where the fetch of this swell was (because I wasn't checking them) and the Surfline forecast calls for 197. Today it should be the peak of the swell, but there should be waves pretty much all week, before another solid S swell will hit on Friday. Didn't see the fetch of that one either.
Expect a beach report later.

North shore
4.4ft @ 8s from 65° (ENE)
3.1ft @ 7s from 64° (ENE)
1.9ft @ 5s from 67° (ENE)
Just windswell at Pauwela, as you would expect this time of the year. The NW swells will get more and more rare as we move deeper into summer. Hookipa will probably be around chest/shoulder high and windy.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific only offers a windswell fetch.

South shore has more Tasman Sea energy in store for us. I can't help to notice the lack of wind in Fiji, Two-feet-Pete must be happy.

Morning sky.
