Saturday 6 16 18 morning call

A longboard and a SUP session for me yesterday, both with excellent waves, as the light E wind and the vog made for glassy conditions all morning on the Lahaina side. Didn't have time to take a photo of the day, but fortunately Jimmie Hepp shot the windsurfers at Hookipa and here's the biggest wave I could find out of this gallery.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

4.7ft @ 15s from 142° (SE)

4.8ft @ 14s from 192° (SSW)

4.8ft @ 13s from 185° (S)

4.5ft @ 15s from 179° (S)
Really good numbers at the buoys, the waves should be pumping everywhere on the south shore.

North shore
4.4ft @ 8s from 71° (ENE)
3.3ft @ 12s from 324° (NW)
NW swell down to 12s, but still there. Enjoy until it lasts, because I don't see much for the next couple of weeks.
Wind map at noon.

No significant fetches in the North Pacific.

Small and distant fetch in the South Pacific.

Morning sky.
