Wednesday 6 24 20 morning call

6am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.8ft @ 12s from 184° (S)            

1.7ft @ 13s from 177° (S)                        

South swell keeps going down, but there's still something in the water. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
1.8ft @ 11s from 322° (NW)            

0.9ft @ 11s from 310° (WNW)

4.4ft @ 7s from 69° (ENE)
0.9ft @ 12s from 335° (NNW)            

Very small WNW energy at the buoys. It comes from the early stage of the low that is going to gift us with an out of season NW swell in the next few days. Below is the map of June 20th, which shows the fetch. This swell is going to be pretty decent (Pat Caldwell put 4ft 13s on Friday), I'll post the rest of the maps tomorrow. Today those waves should be barely visible at Hookipa (but worth a check), so I call the usual small waves at Hookipa, bigger on eastern exposure (because of the windswell).

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.
