Tuesday 11 10 20 morning call

 Easterly swell pretty solid at Hookipa and the eastern exposures yesterday (will be also today), this is my pick of Jimmie Hepp's album.

In this wind, this is what I would be doing (the guy is on a foil), but hip pain persists and I'm staying off the foil.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.2ft @ 14s from 200° (SSW)


0.9ft @ 12s from 186° (S)
0.9ft @ 14s from 189° (S)

Tiny amount of new 14s southerly energy coming from the angular spreading fetch below of Nov 2nd.

It'll probably be barely noticeable, but once in a while there's a little wave like this. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
6.2ft @ 9s from 67° (ENE)


1.9ft @ 11s from 13° (NNE)
1.8ft @ 13s from 341° (NNW)

Comparing the esterly energy at Mokapu with the NNE and NNW energy at Waimea it's easy to deduce that the easterly energy will be dominant at Hookipa and on the eastern exposures. With 6ft 9s, those last ones will be pretty intense actually.

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).
