This is still the morning, sunset saw a little bigger sizes (I caught a overhead one) and even cleaner conditions.
Elliot Leboe is starting to look like a 20 years old pumping around with straps on his prone foil board.
Yesterday afternoon's buoy check provided a disquieting question: with an open ocean swell size of 3.213 meters at 14s how big are the waves going to be? Those extremely weird numbers appear when you open that page (link n. 11) with Firefox.
4am significant buoy readings and discussion
2.4ft @ 13s from 226° (SW)
Barbers is "overwhelmed" with the NW energy, Lanai registers 2.4ft 13s from 226, which is questionable (might be the NW wrap too). Check the Lahaina webcam before going, I did see a nice shoulder high set, which might mean that this really is SW energy (coming from the fetch of Oct 27 I re-posted yesterday).
9.2ft @ 14s from 321° (NW)
7.7ft @ 14s from 340° (NNW)
The NW fetch is still in the same position, just a little less strong than yesterday. This is going to be a long lasting swell.
Very nice S fetch in the South Pacific. South shore should see action next weekend.
