Si Crowther has been shooting the warm ups at Honolua, this is Carissa Moore last Friday in a shot from this gallery.
2am significant buoy readings
No indications of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for 1.5f 14s, so there might be small waves probably in the knee high range. There was some wrap yesterday in the Lahaina-Puamana area and there might be some today too.
7.2ft @ 9s from 82° (E)
7.4ft @ 14s from 3° (N)
Once again, this is another example of how important the indication of the energy of each single swell on the Surfline buoys page (link n.11) is. Below is what you get if you check the NOAA page for the NW001 buoy instead: only 8s windswell and/or 10s NNE swell. Very far from reality and extremely deceiving.
As far as the existing northerly energy goes, Waimea and Mokapu show around 4f 14-15s, but Maui could actually have even more than that, since the Big Island Hilo buoy shows a healthy 8.8ft @ 14s from 1° (N).
4m update for Waimea is 5.6ft @ 13s from 358° (N) and for Mokapu is 7.1ft @ 12s from 359° (N). Plenty size out there.
North Pacific shows a strong NW fetch and a windswell one.
South Pacific doesn't offer anything of relevance.
Morning sky. Clouds don't look as thick as yesterday, maybe we'll see bits of sun today.
