Monday 7 23 18 morning call

A longboard and a SUP foiling session for me yesterday. The waves were pumping everywhere and here's a few shot I took in between sessions at the Hurley contest at the Lahaina harbor.

The Liotta girl got the bottom turn down.

One for the ladies. What a body!

Unless you start surfing as a young kid, your back will never have such a bend. Look how high the head of Axel Rosenblad is compared to his board. That is a massive advantage for the paddling.

Very impressed by Eli Hanneman. This is a nose pick reverse.

This is Jimmie Hepp's version of the same shot. He's got the whole sequence in this gallery.

After a fantastic afternoon SUP foiling session, on the way home I took some pics of Maalaea. It looks a lot better than it was, as it was almost impossible to connect sections.

My only decent shots were bodyboarders.
Jimmie Hepp instead got some better ones of the surfers in this other gallery.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
2.8ft @ 17s from 153° (SSE)
2.8ft @ 15s from 160° (SSE)
3ft @ 15s from 153° (SSE)
1.8ft @ 18s from 174° (S)
1.7ft @ 15s from 181° (S)
1.5ft @ 12s from 172° (S)
2.9ft @ 17s from 175° (S)
Swell(s) still pumping at the buoys, even though from the early observation of the Ala Moana cam, I got the feeling that the peak of the energy was yesterday afternoon. Will report when I get there.
North shore
4.9ft @ 7s from 57° (ENE)
Decent direction, but 7s won't do much not even at Hookipa. Small kind Pavils still breaking though.

Wind map at noon.
North Pacific still has two separate windswell fetches. We should start receiving some 10s energy from the more distant one around Tuesday/Wednesday.
South Pacific has absolutely nothing for us. Summer has been amazing so far (imo, of course), but now the southerly energy is about to take a break.
Morning sky.
