Saturday 6 23 18 morning call

A 15 minutes windsurfing session for me yesterday was all I needed from the ocean. Today second race of the Maui Race Series at Kanaha.

5am significant buoy readings
South shore

0.7ft @ 12s from 200° (SSW)
0.6ft @ 16s from 202° (SSW)
Slivers of southerly energy detected by Barbers. Ala Moana does show some very occasional long period small lines, like the ones in the pic. I heard contrasting reports yesterday about Maui's Lahaina side. From less than a foot to knee to waist and clean in the morning. I tend to believe the first one. Should be more of the same today with the possibility of the extremely occasional bigger sets.
North shore
6.4ft @ 7s from 82° (E)
Windswell on the way up in size, still marginal in period. Beach report was made before the call today and it's below.

Wind map at noon

North Pacific only has a windswell fetch.
South Pacific offers a Tasman Sea fetch (9f 14s Thursday in Fiji and 2.5f 15s Tuesday 7/26 in Maui) and another very remote who-knows-if-it's-really-oriented-towards-us fetch down south. South shore looking decent for at least a couple of weeks, starting Tuesday.
Morning sky.
