Friday 11 20 20 morning call

Hookipa yesterday morning: Kai Lenny surfing and shooting.

Later on the windsurfers faced challenging conditions.

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.

North shore
5.2ft @ 12s from 333° (NNW)

4.1ft @ 14s from 322° (NW)

4.9ft @ 7s from 66° (ENE)

NW swell peaked yesterday and today it's going to be slowly declining but still pretty elevated all day. Assuming there's 4ft 14s in the Maui waters, Hookipa will have overhead (and possibly blown out) waves to start the day with.

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.
