Friday 3 16 18 morning call

Longboarding and SUP foiling were my activities yesterday, here's a couple of photos from the Lahaina side.

Knee to thigh high it was. The swell got bigger in the afternoon, more like waist to occasionally chest high.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

1.9ft @ 14s from 143° (SE)

2.2ft @ 13s from 212° (SW)

2.8ft @ 14s from 233° (WSW)

Small south swell pretty steady at the buoys, usually the consistency improves a bit on day two. Stay tuned for an early morning beach report.

North shore
3.1ft @ 10s from 359° (N)

2.9ft @ 8s from 55° (ENE)
2.5ft @ 9s from 21° (NNE)
1.8ft @ 11s from 357° (N)

Both N swell and windswell tapering down significantly, today it's going to be a very small day at Hookipa. Should be clean though with very favorable winds in the morning.

Wind map at noon (24h+ old, model didn't update). Windguru suggests less wind.

North Pacific doesn't show much wave generation at all.

South Pacific keeps showing cyclonic activity. Without the map with the great circle rays on the right, I would have never been able to know which portion of those winds were directed towards us.

Morning sky.
