9 4 15 morning call

Pretty average day yesterday on both shores. Perfect for my surfing students instead.

This is a photo from 2006, that's the very first digital gopro camera that was launched and that's the first nose of the board mount I came up with (no sticky plates yet). It worked, but the board was super slow because the strap was catching water on the bottom. I learned something there.

Buoys are showing a bit of energy from the NW, but I would not be too excited about 1.4ft @ 14s from 332° (NNW). Minimal energy at the Lanai buoy too and that's what the Lahaina webcam shows too. Report from Hookipa coming up soon.
5.8ft @ 8s from 95° (E)           
3ft @ 12s from 7° (N)

4ft @ 6s from 39° (NE)
1.9ft @ 11s from 9° (N)
1.3ft @ 14s from 339° (NNW)
4ft @ 7s from 78° (ENE)
4ft @ 8s from 77° (ENE)
1.5ft @ 5s from 66° (ENE)
1.4ft @ 14s from 332° (NNW)

1.5ft @ 7s from 167° (SSE)
1.3ft @ 3s from 26° (NNE)
1.1ft @ 16s from 196° (SSW)
1ft @ 13s from 188° (S)
Wind map shows nice not too strong wind, but notice the little component of onshore direction, specially in the original direction off Hana.

That is confirmed also by the large scale wind map, that also shows a minimal fetch up north shooting mostly towards central America.
North shore is gonna be pretty small until next week Thursday/Friday. Hopefully already Wednesday.
The storm doesn't look as impressive as it did a couple of days ago, but we should get a swell still much better than what we have now.

 And a couple of small fetches down south too, just to keep the background level surf up.
