Another day of beautiful waves on the north shore, thanks to the lack of trades. This is my pick of Jimmie Hepp's album.
4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
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.
7.8ft @ 10s from 330° (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.
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):
