Wednesday 5 13 20 morning call

I'm pretty baffled that with so many options involving waves, these days I prefer to wing foil in the harbor. For sure it's the newity factor and the figuring out of things, but it's also the pleasure of a discipline where transitions that can be done as smooth as silk. I'm not only becoming a "trans-kiter", but I might also become a freestyler!

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.1ft @ 13s from 307° (WNW)
0.5ft @ 20s from 204° (SSW)

1.4ft @ 13s from 221° (SW)
0.5ft @ 20s from 208° (SSW)

Small 13s southerly energy at the buoys with a hint of 20s energy. This last one will be extremely inconsistent. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3.5ft @ 13s from 324° (NW)

3ft @ 13s from 315° (NW)

3.2ft @ 13s from 319° (NW)

3.4ft @ 13s from 317° (NW)
2.4ft @ 9s from 17° (NNE)
2.3ft @ 7s from 49° (NE)
1.2ft @ 11s from 349° (NNW)

The predicted modest NW swell is at the buoys. Hookipa will probably be head high plus. Beach report later.

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