Sunday 11 22 20 morning call

I gave Hookipa a 1.5 yesterday. I confirmed it after surfing it, yet it was fun. Wherever there's a challenge, there's fun.

Conditions like that suit the windsurfers a lot better as they can go around closing out sections or use them to their advantage. Photo from Jimmie Hepp's album of the day.

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
6.5ft @ 13s from 343° (NNW)


2.5ft @ 11s from 351° (N)
2.3ft @ 13s from 320° (NW)

10.7ft @ 9s from 56° (ENE)

New NW pulse shows pretty solid at the NW buoys, and should be on the rise all day locally. It's probably in the water already, but with more than 10ft 9s of ENE windswell is going to be noticeable only in the late morning or afternoon. Another very windy day, so conditions (for surfing) will be horrible on the north shore. Home guess for Hookipa is overhead, blown out and all over the place. Honolua will have much cleaner waves, specially in the afternoon.

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):
