The wind meter is back on the roof (and on the blog). Here's the post that explains how to interpret its readings.
A shortboard session for me yesterday. Conditions were excellent again (it's been REALLY good). I surfed the same spot as my friend Matias, but I didn't get a vision like that. Good job, brother!
After my session, I took a few shots. This is Charlie Smith.
Round house cuttie at Middles.
Groms looking at perfect waves on a Sunday morning. Are they aware of how lucky they are? If they were my kids, I would make sure they are.
I had the time for a second session, but not the energy. So I went to check out the Menehune contest (didn't know it's now a two days contest). Once again, how lucky are the Maui kids?
3am significant buoy readings
2ft @ 14s from 244° (WSW)
Not sure what to do with that direction, but it's worth to check the webcams to see if there's something breaking. Below is the fetch of 7 days ago (April 1st) and it does show a nice fetch.
Right now you have to guess by looking at the Kihei and Ala Moana cams (that's what I do, at least). Soon we'll be able to check the new Lahaina webcam. This is a photo taken from the spot where it will be installed. Here's the scoop I received from the Ozolio representative: The camera has full controls and a 30x zoom. Its a really nice Axis camera and should have some amazing views of the harbor... can even see Breakwall from the south side of the roof which is a bonus.
Keep the donations coming. One day you will be able to brag with your friends you were one of the funders of it...
5.4ft @ 13s from 322° (NW)
Wind map at noon. Trades are back.
North Pacific still has a couple of WNW fetches, but they're both pretty weak.
South Pacific has a couple of SSE fetches.
