Sunday 9 6 20 morning call

One of the things I've been enjoying most out of the wing downwinders I've been doing, is the view of the ocean in front of you when you're riding at the very top of a swell. Imagine the view this guy must have... Yesterday, somewhere on the north shore around 5pm.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.3ft @ 9s from 174° (S)
2ft @ 16s from 193° (SSW)
1.7ft @ 13s from 186° (S)

2.3ft @ 9s from 183° (S)
2.1ft @ 16s from 191° (SSW)
1.5ft @ 13s from 184° (S)

2ft 16s should provide for fun size waves, the other two periods will only introduce some disturbances, unless you manage to lock into a double up. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3.6ft @ 6s from 66° (ENE)
3.6ft @ 9s from 33° (NE)

Nice symmetry in the numbers of the two windswells at Pauwela, also today there should be small waves at Hookipa and on 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.
