Wednesday 11 11 20 morning call

Easterly waves at Hookipa yesterday afternoon.

You guys probably seen this already, but this complete edit just came out. Kai Lenny shares the nightmare of a wipeout at massive Nazare. I also like the end part that shows how hard it is to make out through the waves with a big mechanical thing like a jet-ski.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

1.7ft @ 13s from 188° (S)
1.1ft @ 11s from 214° (SW)


1.4ft @ 13s from 199° (SSW)
1.2ft @ 11s from 229° (SW)

Small southerly energy at the buoys. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore


6.8ft @ 9s from 65° (ENE)
5.4ft @ 7s from 68° (ENE)

7.8ft @ 9s from 59° (ENE)

Plenty and only easterly energy also today, head high messy waves at Hookipa, overhead on eastern exposures.

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):
