Wednesday 3 28 18 morning calls

Longboard session for me yesterday. Below are two Jimmie Hepp's photos from yesterday to show that there's waves at Thousand Peaks and in Waiehu. Which is something that if you read the buoys, you should know already.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
2.9ft @ 14s from 157° (SSE)

3.4ft @ 13s from 166° (SSE)

3.8ft @ 13s from 152° (SSE)

Pretty solid numbers at the outer buoys. Since the waves have been good to excellent on the north shore, I haven't gone south, but I might have to check it out today.

North shore
5.7ft @ 9s from 75° (ENE)

Lovely pure windswell reading at Pauwela, that'll still make waves at Hookipa, but the east facing breaks  will get the most exposure.

Wind map at noon shows a light onshore flow, but there should be no wind at all for most of the morning.

The clean surfing conditions are predicted to continue, as the Windguru table below shows light winds from all kind of favorable directions.

North Pacific shows the weekend NW swell fetch getting closer to us and building the same waves it generated yesterday (captured fetch) and the relentless E fetch.

Nothing at all in the South Pacific.

Morning sky.
