Wednesday 10 14 20 morning call

Another fun day of waves on the south shore. Back on the north shore, a couple of kids going downwind from Hookipa tore a few waves off in front of my sunset spot.

Ozone wing, Naish board, MFC foil... tag him if you know him. :)

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

2.3ft @ 11s from 216° (SW)
1.5ft @ 15s from 195° (SSW)

1.9ft @ 10s from 181° (S)
1.5ft @ 12s from 188° (S)
1.3ft @ 15s from 191° (SSW)

Relatively modest numbers should make for a smaller day on the south shore, but if you have the patience to wait for the 15s sets... Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

2.1ft @ 11s from 329° (NW)

2.8ft @ 8s from 75° (ENE)
2.6ft @ 10s from 43° (NE)

6.3ft @ 9s from 98° (E)

Very small NW energy leftover at Waimea. Mokapu and Hilo showing very different numbers of E energy, hard to tell what we have locally. Overall, I'm gonna guess a day of pretty small waves at Hookipa and the eastern exposures, but very clean conditions in the morning, thanks to the lack of wind.

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).
