I only had time to take a quick photo before moving on to other perfection (beginner waves for a lesson on the south shore), Jimmie Hepp was at Hookipa later in the day and took this shot of Yuri Soledade. A bit of texture, but still not bad at all.
No need for buoy graphs today. At 4am the NW one has been steady on these two readings:
4.6ft @ 9s from 41° (NE)
As a matter of fact, the same two swells are read at Waimea as:
3.7ft @ 9s from 348° (NNW)
while Mokapu reads:
3.9ft @ 9s from 37° (NE)
Days are getting longer, I'm posting earlier and I seem not to get the MC2km maps updated anymore, so I'm trying to guess this by looking at the different models on windguru and windity...
Talking about this last one, this is this morning's wind map and shows a full formed and intense NW fetch. It will move towards us (see yesterday's post for the definition of a captured fetch) and send us the last (ahah, just kidding) extra large swell of the winter at 15f 16s on Wednesday.
This is the same map that was modeled by GFS (in Windity's brilliant graphical representation) on March 23, so you can see how accurate that model is when you're looking only a few days ahead.
