4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
Almost one foot 14s of presumably NNW (Waimea shows W) energy is at Pauwela. That could be either a very improbable wrap of the westerly energy out of the typhoons SE of Japan we saw last week or most likely the forerunners of what we can call the first NW swell of the season, which Pat Caldwell was announcing for tomorrow afternoon (we'll look at the maps tomorrow). I don't think it'll do much today, so the usual small waves at Hookipa and on eastern exposures.

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):
