5 24 15 morning call

South swell is pumping as the snip from the Lahaina and Ala Moana webcams shows.

Stopped by Hookipa at sunset and there sure was some size, but really unclean breaking pattern.

I have the same chair.

5.8ft @ 9s from 5° (N)

2.2ft @ 13s from 196° (SSW)
1.6ft @ 16s from 202° (SSW)
1.5ft @ 10s from 275° (W)
1.3ft @ 20s from 218° (SW)

which means more continued action on both shores. I love the Barbers' readings: there's all kind of periods and that means the overlapping of different swells or at least swell trains coming from different parts of the many fetches that have been present east, south and west of New Zealand last week. Thanks to the long travel time and related inconsistency, a mix like this doesn't get too disorganized and it's still very enjoyable.

Talking about fetches, little very close N fetch north of us for more 8-9s N waves while the southern hemisphere is getting ready for packing a serious punch. Once that fetch moves completely east of New Zealand the rest of today and tomorrow, it's gonna blow hard and rise some serious seas.
So mark next Sunday/Monday on your calendar. 4.7f 16s called by Surfline on Monday.

The wind is light NE all day, hallelujah.
