Tuesday 5 19 20 morning call

Thanks to blog reader Renew Your Spirit for the donation.

The waves on the north shore were small yesterday (but still plenty on the other side), this is an album of the Hookipa action posted by Jimmie Hepp. I chose instead this shot of kiter Jesse Richman by OneMoreFoto (not sure when this was).

3am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.7ft @ 13s from 186° (S)

2.3ft @ 14s from 195° (SSW)

Still decent numbers at the buoys, this swell has been very long lasting. Below is the collage of the maps of May 12, 13 and 14 that show the source.

Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3ft @ 6s from 39° (NE)
2.7ft @ 8s from 35° (NE)
2ft @ 4s from 59° (ENE)

NW swell disappeared completely and today it should look pretty summery on the north shore.

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