Monday 11 5 18 morning call

Day of rest for me yesterday. This is a lonely foiler (looks like Ethan) making the most of the tiny waves at Ukumehame.

As predicted, the Aloha Classic was on and this is a shot by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.

3am significant buoy readings
South shore
1.7ft @ 13s from 197° (SSW)

Small energy from the SSW courtesy of that fetch in the Tasman Sea we saw a week ago. That's knee high stuff, occasionally bigger.

North shore
3.3ft @ 12s from 321° (NW)

3.3ft @ 11s from 329° (NW)

1.6ft @ 12s from 313° (NW)
1.2ft @ 11s from 319° (NW)

5.2ft @ 8s from 74° (ENE)                         
1.3ft @ 13s from 328° (NW

NW energy is tiny at Pauwela. Might get a little bigger during the day, but 5f 8s from 74 might hopefully provide the Aloha Classic remaining competitors with a base of waves to play with. I believe they're going to try to finish all the remaining categories today.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific has a tiny NW fetch in the very NW corner, a small one much closer one and a pretty decent and long windswell one.

Nothing in the South Pacific, as I doubt we'll get much angular spreading from that fetch aimed at Central America.

Morning sky.
