Sunday 3-28: Forecast

waves (short term): The NW buoy is at 9 feet, 7 sec and the Waimea buoy is 8 feet, 7 sec, 25 degrees. That's an ugly wind swell. And that's the only swell recorded by these two buoys! Do I even need to tell you that surf is gonna suck?
waves (long term): as I wrote yesterday, surfers, you're done for a while. Strong NE wind will blow this coming week and make for a high, rough, unrideable windswell. Around Tuesday a medium swell from NW will arrive and last for a few days. But, with that strong wind, it will only be good for wavesailing. Today I add that the models show another storm forming off Japan in about 48 hours and that will send another NW swell around the end of this coming week... just in time for the finals of the PWA contest at Hookipa!
South pacific still kind of sleepy. Actually there's a decent storm in the Tasman sea, but I think the related swell will only hit Tahiti and French Polinesia in a few days. Good time for a surf trip!
wind: Strong NE for the whole next week.
sky: More rain, but it should start to clear out during the day.
Kahului tides: High 2.49am 1.6 feet, Low 9.07am 0.1 feet, High 3.42pm 2.1 feet, Low 10.22pm 0.4 feet.
