Monday 5 6 19 morning call

A day of rest for me yesterday. No photos of the day (and no internet, tethering off my phone), here's an old one from a helicopter photoshoot probably done in 2004. The board is a 12.6x26 Timpone, the sail a 4.7 Hot Sails Maui Superfreak. Nice memories.

3am significant buoy readings
South shore
1.6ft @ 15s from 201° (SSW)

2.7ft @ 11s from 203° (SSW)
2.4ft @ 6s from 269° (W)
1.7ft @ 15s from 185° (S)

Nice 15s period energy at the buoys, plus the windswell leftover by the Kona wind. There definitely should be waves on the south shore, but check the Lahaina cam before going.

North shore
7.3ft @ 9s from 15° (NNE)

6.7ft @ 9s from 340° (NNW)

5.9ft @ 9s from 329° (NW)

5.8ft @ 10s from 329° (NW)
5.4ft @ 11s from 321° (NW)

Plenty shortish period NW energy leftover by the NW wind that came after the Kona, Hookipa should be pretty solid, probably a bit overhead, clean thanks to the lack of wind, but still a bit disorganized/sloppy. Notice how it's turning more north as you move up the buoys.

Wind map at noon. Should be calm till 10ish.

North Pacific has a NW fetch.

South Pacific still has a portion of a massive strong fetch oriented towards us (red circle).

Morning sky.
