Sunday 7 22 18 morning call

A shortboard and a longboard session for me yesterday. Here's a quick shot I took of the Hurley contest at the Lahaina harbor, which will be on also today.

This is my missing in action coworker Russ who is doing what he likes best somewhere in the world. Just a great photo by Trudy Lary from this album.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

2.3ft @ 15s from 168° (SSE)
1.8ft @ 20s from 118° (ESE)

2ft @ 18s from 141° (SE)
2ft @ 15s from 154° (SSE)

2.2ft @ 18s from 126° (ESE)

1.7ft @ 13s from 183° (S)
1.5ft @ 16s from 183° (S)
1.2ft @ 20s from 187° (S)
1.5ft @ 13s from 190° (S)
1.5ft @ 20s from 177° (S)
1.3ft @ 16s from 182° (S)
Wonderful readings at the buoys. It should be no surprise to see so many different periods if you remember how intricate the map of the fetches generating those energies were. The consistency should be above average, as should be the size. But I'll report as soon as I get there, probably around 6.30-7am.

North shore
3.5ft @ 7s from 50° (NE)
That's a good direction, but the numbers are too low to do anything more that waist high even at Hookipa. That's my guess at least, I'm not even wasting those 2 minutes to go see these days. There's a webcam if you're interested.
Wind map at noon.

North pacific has a closer easterly windswell fetch and a further away NE one.

South Pacific has scattered weak fetches all over that I didn't feel like circling, because they won't do much at all.

Morning sky.
