Sunday 8 11 19 morning call

The beautiful waves on the south shore continued, but this is from a recent previous swell. Micah Nickens eyeing the formation of a possible barrel down the line. Wonderful, right? Unless you're the guy stuck on the inside... Photo by OneMoreFoto.

The Larry Libres fishing and diving tournament was held at Kanaha. Jimmy Hepp posted a library of photos. Not a good day for the tacos.

3am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2ft @ 15s from 191° (SSW)                        
1.4ft @ 12s from 189° (S)

2.1ft @ 13s from 186° (S)
1.9ft @ 16s from 197° (SSW)
Good numbers once again at the local buoys. It seems that a new long period pulse (15-16s) did add up to the first one (now down to 12-13s), so it should be another day of fun waves with a consistency slightly higher than usual. Check the webcam for size and conditions. This is an image I took yesterday at sunset, before stepping out and enjoying the wonderful spectacle.

North shore
2.9ft @ 8s from 118° (ESE)

North shore is going to be flat again.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific's main fetch is the west one from the typhoon offshore China. This is going to be an interesting swell. Pretty much straight west and a week long or so.

South Pacific has a decent fetch partially shadowed by New Zealand and a couple of very small S ones.

Morning sky.
