Proper goiter attempt on a non proper goiter section.
Pavils looked fun too, but packed with very good surfers.
The size was still there, as this photo of Levi shows. Everybody wrongly calling it "the hurricane swell" while in my opinion, it had nothing to do with it. The difference between 9 and 15 seconds is so evident, you don't even need to count.
4am significant buoy readings
2ft @ 12s from 140° (SE)
3.9ft @ 12s from 100° (E)
2.8ft @ 11s from 102° (ESE)
I'm watching the Ala Moana cam while typing this call, and the energy is minimal, but very inconsistently there's a nice set. That's pretty much what we can expect today on the south shore of Maui too. It's going to be smaller than yesterday, that's for sure.
There's a set like this (head high) every 15-30 minutes or so at Ala Moana. In the meantime, there's smaller shorter period waves and also spells of flatness.
Windswell down to 4.7f 8s, Hookipa will be MUCH smaller than it's been the last few days.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific today shows lighter trades and a much weaker than the last 2 weeks windswell fetch. Expect the windswell to quickly go down in size.
South Pacific offers that fetch in the Tasman Sea which has now enlarged, but lost some steam.
Morning sky. Should a glorious sunny day with lighter trades not bringing too much rain on the windward side.
