Sunday 12 2 18 morning call

A longboard and a SUP foiling session for me yesterday. No photo of the day, here's an amazing image from Ben Thouard. BTW, I'm selling the board I used to learn prone foiling.

4am significant buoy readings
North shore
5.7ft @ 9s from 14° (NNE)
3.8ft @ 11s from 350° (N)

4.8ft @ 9s from 333° (NNW)
3.9ft @ 10s from 332° (NNW)
3.7ft @ 12s from 321° (NW)

5.1ft @ 13s from 316° (NW)
4.1ft @ 11s from 320° (NW)

3.9ft @ 14s from 329° (NW)
3.9ft @ 11s from 324° (NW)
3.1ft @ 8s from 23° (NNE)
NW swell came up all day yesterday and now is on a slow trend down. 4f 14s plus the other energy in the water will give Hookipa head to possibly head and a half waves (that's how it looked at sunset yesterday from the distance), I'll report early.

South shore
No southerly energy at the buoys, today I'm gonna call it flat. Obviously, if there was a webcam hosted by Ozolio in Lahaina, we would have a visual confirmation of that, but unfortunately there's none at the moment. Ocean front business owners, think about it.

Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has an intense, but not particularly large NW fetch (should get better in the next hours) which is the one that will generate the large swell that Surfline predicts to peak at 11.6f 16s Wednesday night. Also notice a N fetch associated with the close by low that sent us yesterday and today's NW swell.
Nothing of relevance in the South Pacific.
Morning sky.
