Saturday 1 19 18 morning call

Two SUP foiling sessions for me yesterday and another brilliant opportunity to rest went wasted. The thing is that with the foiling added to the disciplines pool, there almost never are bad conditions that allow you to rest. I'll try again today. This is Jason yesterday in a shot by Chris.

5am significant buoy readings
South shore
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys

North shore
7.4ft @ 10s from 351° (N)

5.6ft @ 13s from 341° (NNW)
5.2ft @ 9s from 339° (NNW)
5.8ft @ 10s from 333° (NNW)
5.4ft @ 11s from 328° (NW)
6.9ft @ 11s from 331° (NNW)
3.7ft @ 10s from 335° (NNW)
3.6ft @ 6s from 358° (N)
There's plenty energy at the buoys (overhead at Hookipa), but this batch of waves isn't as clean as it's been. Plus there's a bit a trades already on it. Plus I need some rest, not even sure I'm going to have a look later. Sorry.

Wind map at noon. Wind/kitesurfers will get on that like flies on honey.
North Pacific has a new WNW fetch. Some of that energy will be blocked for Maui, but some won't.
Nothing in the South (the circled one is blocked by New Zealand).
Morning sky.
