OneMoreFoto is still in France shooting barrels.
Beautiful sunrise shot by my friend Shantelle.
3am significant buoy readings and discussion.
1.2ft @ 13s from 192° (SSW)
1ft @ 16s from 218° (SW)
Small numbers at the buoys, waves should be small today. Check the Lahaina webcam before going.
4.4ft @ 11s from 17° (NNE)
7.1ft @ 10s from 348° (NNW)
4.7ft @ 12s from 356° (N)
4.3ft @ 12s from 353° (N)
As predicted, the swell turned N and peaked yesterday mid day at the N buoy (graph below). It should be declining locally throughout the day (even though Surfline has it bigger tomorrow), but the morning will still have good size and clean conditions. Yesterday I had a surf guide customer whom I took to an uncrowded north shore spot. It was so good, he hired me again today. Appointment is 6am at Honolua Bay (which was breaking already yesterday). I might post a report from there after the session.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has a small W fetch associated with Typhoon Hagibis.
South Pacific has a S fetch.
