Tuesday 9 26 17 morning call

3 hours SUP foiling session yesterday in excellent conditions. Today I'm gonna try the front foot strap, stay tuned for the feedback.

3-4am significant buoy readings
South shore

1.2ft @ 17s from 259° (WSW)

1.7ft @ 12s from 219° (SW)

Couple of days ago I posted the collage of the fetches maps of 16, 17 and 18. They all had small fetches in the Tasman Sea and the related swell is what we've been surfing on the south shore the last couple of days. Below is the collage of 19, 20 and 21 and they show a new fetch in the same area.
This is to say that the 17s reading at the W buoy COULD be a sign of the new energy, while the 12s reading at the SW buoy most likely is the residual energy of the older swell. Stay tuned for a beach report.

North Pacific
2.2ft @ 11s from 319° (NW)

0.7ft @ 13s from 281° (WNW)

3.1ft @ 8s from 51° (ENE)

Still NW energy at the NW buoy, but somehow it doesn't get registered by the local buoys. I did see some waist to chest high waves yesterday at sunset at Hookipa and I will have time to look at it before leaving this morning so I will post a report later.

Wind map at noon shows potential windfoiling action in north Kihei.

North Pacific shows a wide but weak NW fetch.

Third consecutive day of nothingness in the South Pacific.

Third consecutive day of no clouds.
