Tuesday 4 17 18 morning call

A shortboard session for me yesterday.
As predicted, the waves at Hookipa were smaller than the past couple of days, as the NW swell died during the day and now there's only windswell in the water. Photo by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

1.9ft @ 14s from 168° (SSE)

2.2ft @ 14s from 130° (ESE)

2.4ft @ 15s from 132° (SE)

Lovely long period southerly energy at the buoy, stay tuned for a beach report later as I'm probably heading Lahaina way.

North shore
6.8ft @ 9s from 64° (ENE)

Windswell and wind on the north shore today.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific shows a fetch in the NW corner and the windswell fetch.

South Pacific shows a fetch in the Tasman Sea. I circled in black a massive fetch oriented towards central and south America.

Morning sky.
