Monday 11 20 17 morning call

Double SUP foiling session at the harbor for me yesterday. The wind kept blowing hard and then stopping after the rain, so it was a matter of timing it right.

This is Oahu's Sam Pa'e in a remarkable photo showing the failing tuttle box installation on his foil SUP. I'm having my second SUP board "retro-foiled", hopefully it'll be stronger than that.

This is Zane Schweitzer doing what he does: foiling spots that are not good for normal people because too shallow.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

No indication of southerly energy at the outer buoys. That is no surprise, seen the strong N energy in the water. The Surfline forecast calls for 1.6f 12s. Plus, the Lahaina/Puamana area will most likely get the wrap from the north.

North shore
10.8ft @ 13s from 354° (N)
4.7ft @ 10s from 348° (NNW)
8.8ft @ 13s from 355° (N)
4.9ft @ 9s from 353° (N)

8.1ft @ 13s from 3° (N)
4.9ft @ 9s from 1° (N)
Pretty big numbers at the buoys, Hookipa will be a giant mess, look for sheltered spots. West side going to go off.
Wind map at noon shows light NW wind, but the early morning should be glassy/offshore.

Another strong N fetch in the North Pacific. 12f 15s from 356 predicted by Surfline on Thursday.

Nothing from the South Pacific.

Morning sky. More cold air coming down from the north. It's officially sweater as soon as you get out of bed time.
