Saturday 5 9 20 morning call

A couple of phone shots of Paia Bay, which was kind of pumping on the high tide at sunset.

The kids were loving the shore break close outs.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.2ft @ 13s from 188° (S)

1.5ft @ 13s from 201° (SSW)
1ft @ 18s from 200° (SSW)

Small southerly energy continues at the buoys, while Lanai registers also 1ft 18s from 200. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
5ft @ 11s from 2° (N)

5.4ft @ 12s from 353° (N)

4.2ft @ 12s from 355° (N)

4.9ft @ 13s from 358° (N)
3.9ft @ 9s from 347° (NNW)

5.5ft @ 13s from 4° (N)
5.4ft @ 9s from 355° (N)

The NNW (now N) swell picked up nicely, but the NE wind made for poor conditions yesterday. Today the wind should be similar, but it seems there's no wind in the early morning. Hookipa will be head and a half at least. Waves everywhere also down the coast.

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