Sunday 10 4 20 morning call

Another big wave day yesterday, these are my picks of Jimmie Hepp's album. I recommend watching the whole sequence of this incredible 360 from Browzinho.

Beautiful wall of water in front of Kai Lenny.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
No southerly energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency, it shows some wrap from the north.

North shore
5.6ft @ 13s from 337° (NNW)


6.1ft @ 13s from 357° (N)
3.7ft @ 10s from 352° (N)


3.6ft @ 13s from 354° (N)
2.9ft @ 10s from 345° (NNW)
2ft @ 11s from 353° (N)


6.6ft @ 13s from 360° (N)
1.9ft @ 9s from 348° (NNW)

The northerly energy is predicted to decline today, but with such good readings at the NW and N buoys, there will be plenty waves for most of the day also today. Head and a half to double is my guess from home at Hookipa. 

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.
