Thursday 4 5 18 morning call

No water action for me yesterday, as the poor wave conditions continue. No photo of the day either, so here's another image from the past KalamaKamps. I booked my flights, so I'm officially in for the May 25th week. More info here. $50 discount for the blog readers.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

1.4ft @ 11s from 186° (S)
1.1ft @ 13s from 150° (SE)
Some low long period energy at the SE buoy, but it's onshore over there.

North shore
2.8ft @ 10s from 321° (NW)                       
1.5ft @ 13s from 304° (WNW)
2.3ft @ 9s from 331° (NNW)                      
1.1ft @ 14s from 327° (NW)
The NW bump arrived, but it's pretty tiny. Plus the Kona is blowing pretty strong this morning, I don't expect anything particularly good at Hookipa. Stay tuned for a beach report later.
Wind map at noon. The Kona should start lightening up in the afternoon.
North Pacific shows a WNW, a NW and a NNE fetch. Next week is actually shaping up to be quite an excellent one for Honolua with three different swells from favorable directions.
South Pacific shows a small SE fetch.

Morning sky. The front in the top left corner should be the one that will make the wind switch to NE tonight.

In the meantime, the small sub-front is bringing some rain on the south shores.
