Thursday 10 4 19 morning call

A longboard and a windfoiling session for me yesterday. No action photo of the day, here's the sunset by Jimmie Hepp.

5am significant buoy readings
South shore
6.9ft @ 13s from 230° (SW)

6.2ft @ 12s from 271° (W)

4.7ft @ 15s from 189° (S)

4.5ft @ 15s from 206° (SSW)
3.1ft @ 13s from 250° (WSW)
Big westerly numbers at the buoys courtesy of Hurricane Walaka. There might be some southerly energy in the water too, but that's going to be overridden by the westerly one. Big waves everywhere on the south shore today, included kihei and makena. Here's Ala Moana, which I keep showing until we find an ocean front business owner in Lahaina that would like to host one with Ozolio. Those waves are well overhead.
North shore
4.4ft @ 13s from 326° (NW)

Not a bad number at Pauwela, considering that the NW swell has been decling all day yesterday. Hookipa should be still at least head high this morning and clean conditions.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific shows Hurricane Walaka that moved  north and soon is going to start making waves that will reach the north shore. The other significant fetch is up in the NW corner.

South Pacific has nothing.

Morning sky shows Malaka's very outer bands over Kauai.
