Monday 4 1 18 morning call

A shortboard and two SUP foiling sessions for me yesterday. First one wasn't that great (when I saw it from the cliff it looked like an 8, but in the water it was like a 5. When I left it looked good again), but the last two were fantastic. Check the butter smooth conditions in this photo showing Dave Kalama gliding on a glassy wall. Obviously foiling will be one of the activities of the Fiji KalamaKamp I mentioned yesterday. Here's the website with additional info that I forgot to link yesterday.

I took this shot from the beach instead: Maui's foildrome at its finest.

Here's a little wave I filmed with the mouth mount.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for 1f 12s.

North shore
6.9ft @ 10s

5ft @ 10s from 325° (NW)

3.1ft @ 9s from 39° (NE)
2.5ft @ 11s from 323° (NW)
Get used to seeing Hanalei in the reported buoys, with the NW ones not showing the direction and Waimea down, it's now the most important one to check for swells coming from the NW.
NW swell down to 10-11 seconds and 3 feet locally, waves are going to be relatively small at Hookipa. Stay tuned for a beach report later. The trend is a down one, gonna get close to flat soon, but fortunately there still are fairly strong storms predicted to form in the long term.
Wind map at noon shows potential for port tack sailing at Hookipa.

North Pacific today shows two NW fetches. The closest one is associated with the low that will bring us Kona winds from today till Thursday.

Nothing in the South Pacific.

Morning sky.
