Monday 5 4 20 morning call

About a year ago, Dan Taylor took a winDfoiling lesson from me, as he was a windsurfer and he wanted to enter the foiling world. After learning that, he got into SUP foiling and after that, he jumped on the wing wagon. Now he's got so good at winGfoiling that I could take a lesson from him!
Btw, happy birthday to Ken Winner, who is the man we have to thank for the early development of the wings.

5am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
0.6ft @ 16s from 209° (SSW)

0.8ft @ 15s from 191° (SSW)

Very small southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3.2ft @ 12s from 339° (NNW)

2.6ft @ 11s from 335° (NNW)

2.3ft @ 11s from 329° (NW)

4.9ft @ 6s from 44° (NE)
3.9ft @ 8s from 62° (ENE)
2.5ft @ 11s from 331° (NNW)
Low 11s NNW energy continues as does the NE windswell. Both will give Hookipa head high (occasionally bigger) blown out waves. Tomorrow there should be a bigger NNW pulse, but the timing will depend on when it hits the buoys, which we'll know tomorrow.

Wind map at noon (the other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column).
