Thursday 11 12 20 morning call

No photos of the day, time to post those two incredible shots that you guys probably have seen already.
This is Matahi Drollet in a photo by Thomas Bevilacqua.

This is Clement Colmas, one of the two New Caledonian kids that came to Maui in the summer 2019 (the other one being Titouan Galea) and showed us what can be done with the wing on the waves. You can find a video of that wave on his Instagram page.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.2ft @ 14s from 174° (S)

1.2ft @ 14s from 178° (S)

Very small southerly energy at the buoys and very small waves in the water. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
8.9ft @ 9s from 63° (ENE)

9.7ft @ 9s from 64° (ENE)

Elevated easterly windswell only, Hookipa will be head high plus, the eastern exposures well overhead up to double.

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).
