Sunday 10 18 20 morning call

 Another day of beautiful waves on the north shore, thanks to the lack of trades. This is my pick of Jimmie Hepp's album.

Sunset at Hookipa was also pretty good.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
0.3ft @ 20s from 211° (SW)

South facing buoys are registering mostly the NW energy, but Barbers shows a sliver of 20s SW energy from the Tasman Sea which should provide a new small swell tomorrow. There shouldn't be much today, but check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
7.8ft @ 10s from 330° (NW)


4.4ft @ 12s from 326° (NW)
3.2ft @ 9s from 329° (NW)

3.3ft @ 9s from 42° (NE)

NW energy continues, Maui should have around 4ft 12s plus the NE energy you see at Mokapu. Probably another overhead day at Hookipa with great conditions.

Wind map at noon .The other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column (click on animation of the 10 meter 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.
