Saturday 6 30 18 morning call

A shortboard and a SUP foiling session for me yesterday. This shot is from the first one. That's my small waves board that I got from Albee. Love it.

5am significant buoy readings
South shore

3.1ft @ 12s from 150° (SE)

3.3ft @ 12s from 144° (SE)

2.9ft @ 12s from 152° (SSE)

2.8ft @ 13s from 190° (S)

South swell easing up and down to 12s at most buoys, it should still provide some fun size waves for the weekend. Thigh to belly is my guess, I don't think I'll have the time to drive there today.

North shore.
4.6ft @ 9s from 64° (ENE)

Windswell trending down together with the trade winds. Gonna start being high again mid week, but what's in the water will still provide fun size waves at Hookipa and the east facing shores.

Wind map at noon shows lighter winds than the past whole week. Should stay lighter for a couple of days and then start blowing strong again.

North Pacific has a distant and weak WNW fetch and the windswell one.

South Pacific has a weak fetch oriented towards us (in red) and a stronger/bigger one oriented to the east of us (in blue) of which we'll get some angular spreading. Don't forget that yesterday it was much better oriented towards us, so this will prolong the related next weekend swell.

Morning sky. The weather has been delightful, imo.

I surfed that exact same wave yesterday too. Probably an hour or two after you. First time I've been on a short board in a while and first time I've ridden that spot. Good times!
