Here's the super human at the arrival, for once looking a little tired.
5am significant buoy readings
2.1ft @ 11s from 154° (SSE)
1.5ft @ 11s from 185° (S)
1.2ft @ 16s from 217° (SW)
Everything as predicted at the buoys. The old S swell is down to minimal levels of energy, while a new low long period SW one shows up at Barbers. Excited? You shouldn't. The start of a new SW swell coming from the Tasman Sea is always painfully slow and there won't be that many sets. As a matter of fact, the waves I'm watching on the split screen at Ala Moana seem to mostly belong to the old swell and there's frequent moments of flatness.
This one instead is a solid 16s one, so conditions should slowly improve throughout the day (from the wave size and consistency point of view, of course). I'll probably cruise over the Lahaina side later, right now I'm enjoying a lazy morning of rest.
4.6ft @ 8s from 60° (ENE)
3.6ft @ 7s from 58° (ENE)
Windswell only at Hookipa, that's gonna be the case for the whole week, but with higher numbers towards the second half thanks to the increase of the trades which is forecasted. Below is the windguru 10 days table. I see some downwinders happening.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has a couple of windswell fetches.
South Pacific doesn't have much other then the possible angular spreading of a swell oriented towards the Americas.
