Not much to report from yesterday, here's my lovely coworker Tasha showing a full carbon KT foil surfboard that we have for sail at Hi-Tech.
7am significant buoy readings
Surfline forecast calling for like a foot 15s, Lahaina webcam showing exactly that.
6.2ft @ 13s from 309° (WNW)
But I calculated the shadow lines based on the emerged eastern tip of Molokai. As I try to explain in that post, that's not exactly correct, because the swells will feel the bathymetry of the bottom also offshore. I say this because the only thing that could explain a 2f difference between Oahu and us is some kind of refraction.
Here's a beautiful wave at Pipeline, as I was typing this. 20 guys out.
Today the trades should be too offshore for sailing, but I've seen stranger things.
Current wind map shows:
1) an extremely weak north fetch
2) a windswell fetch
Not a good day of wave generation for us.
