Tuesday 10 9 18 morning call

A longboard and a SUP foiling session for me yesterday on the knee to waist high waves of the south shore. The waves at Hookipa were in the head high range instead, we frequent bigger sets, as shown in this photo by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.

Starting yesterday, you can occasionally see an ad for this blog on the Mama's and Paia bay's webcams. That used to be the cover of my book, thanks again to the artist Crix for it.
Please contact Ozolio if you have an ocean front home/business in Lahaina and want to host a webcam.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
3.1ft @ 15s from 222° (SW)                        
1.8ft @ 11s from 197° (SSW)

2.4ft @ 15s from 197° (SSW)
0.9ft @ 20s from 198° (SSW)
Those are pretty good numbers at the local buoys, there should definitely be waves also today. I'll report around 6.30.
North Shore
7.2ft @ 12s from 317° (NW)
5.8ft @ 13s from 331° (NNW)
5.1ft @ 13s from 99° (E)
5.9ft @ 9s from 61° (ENE)
3.2ft @ 14s from 66° (ENE)
NW swell on the rise at the buoys. Below is the graph of NW101, Hanalei and Pauwela, which suggest a steady rise all day today locally. I reported Hilo too to show that the E swell from Sergio is hitting there at 5f 13s. It's big enough to manage to wrap some and hit Pauwela too. It'll be interesting to how those sets look at Hookipa. One thing for sure, between rising NW, short period windswell and long period E, there should be no lack of waves there today.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific has a NW fetch, the windswell one and Sergio's.

South Pacific has a fetch in the Tasman Sea.

Morning sky.
