With my weird way of watching surf contests (on demand, at my convenience), I'm still watching Teahupoo instead (awesome conditions!). This is Gabriel Medina flying out of a massive wave into the channel. His board was destined to hit Strider Wasilesky on the head, but he somehow figured it out and found the perfect time to pull on his leash mid air and just barely avoid the accident. I watched the reply in disbelief about 20 times. Hope Strider bought him a beer or two...
3am significant buoy readings
1.7ft @ 12s from 267° (W)
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has a sliver of a distant NW fetch and a weak leftover N one nearby.
South Pacific has a fetch by the artic sheet. I circled it in yellow because I don't know how the great rays are down there, but it's such a deep low that it should have some fetch oriented towards us.
