Friday 12 1 17 morning call

A really good windsurfing session for me yesterday, the waves were quite amazing on the north shore.

So they were at Honolua, were the ladies put up an incredible show. Congrats to Tyler Wright for clinching the title, today there will be the finals and I set an early alarm to be there at dawn and watch. Photo by WSL/Pullenot from this page.

2am significant buoy readings
South shore
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys. The Surfline forecast is minimal (1f 11s), it should be pretty flat.

North shore
8.7ft @ 14s from 343° (NNW)

9.4ft @ 14s from 325° (NW)

5.8ft @ 8s from 80° (E)

The collage below shows the graphs of NW001, Waimea and the Surfline forecast. The swell has peaked during the night in Maui, but there will still be plenty size (although declining) throughout all day.

Wind map at noon shows moderate NE trades.

North Pacific shows a remote NW fetch and the windswell one.

South Pacific shows no fetches of relevance.

Morning sky.
