Wednesday 10 24 18 morning call

Two shortboard and a longboard session for me yesterday. The waves on the south shore were awesome once again and that's not gonna end any time soon.

Beauty in the shower.

As predicted, the waves picked up in the afternoon at Hookipa and some sets were well overhead at sunset.

You'll find a bunch of better quality photos in this gallery by Jimmie Hepp.

3am significant buoy readings
South shore
3.8ft @ 13s from 266° (W)

4ft @ 13s from 149° (SE)

3.2ft @ 13s from 188° (S)
1.5ft @ 18s from 182° (S)

3.8ft @ 13s from 244° (WSW)
1.1ft @ 20s from 199° (SSW)

3.7ft @ 14s from 189° (S)                        
1.2ft @ 20s from 195° (SSW)
I look at the readings and smile. Non stop action on the south shore will continue also today with 3-4f 13-14s still in the water and a new pulse of long period energy rising all day. Tomorrow and Friday should be even bigger.

North shore
5.1ft @ 12s from 345° (NNW)
4.4ft @ 12s from 326° (NW)
3.7ft @ 13s from 321° (NW)
3.9ft @ 6s from 79° (ENE)            
3.7ft @ 9s from 41° (NE)
3.1ft @ 13s from 328° (NW)
Pauwela is 2f under the Surfline prediction, but there still be waves, windswell and wind to play with.
Wind map at noon. Trades are going to be stronger than they have lately, and that might screw up things on the other side too.

North Pacific has a decent NW fetch that is going to look even better (and captured) tomorrow. 7f 12s from 343 predicted by Surfline on Sunday out of it. North Pacific about to get active. That's good because...

...South Pacific is taking a well deserved break. After this amazing late season run of waves, the south shore is going to go to rest.

Morning sky.
