Thursday 6 18 20 morning call

Beautiful day of waves on the south shore yesterday. This is Annie, pulling off some strapped airs on her foil board in this occasion.

I believe that foiling is such a subtle discipline (in terms of body movements) that suits the ladies well. There's a lot of them out there that rip. This is Michelle.

5am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.5ft @ 15s from 183° (S)            

2.1ft @ 15s from 190° (S)

Pulse n.2 of these series of swells peaked yesterday mid day with a solid head high size at 17s at select locations. Period is now 15s, probably still waist to shoulder with occasional head highers. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
5.3ft @ 8s from 70° (ENE)            

Small waves at Hookipa, bigger on the eastern exposures.

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

Fetches map (circles legend: red: direct aim, blue: angular spreading, black: blocked, yellow: apparent direct aim, but out of the great circle ray map, so not 100% sure).
North Pacific (about 4 days travel time from the NW corner of the North Pacific):

South Pacific (about 7 days travel time from east/west of New Zealand):

Morning sky.
