Wednesday 4 18 18 morning call

A prone foiling and shortboard session for me yesterday. No photo of the day, here's an image from one of the past Kalama Kamps in the past that shows the incredibly clear water of Fiji.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

2.8ft @ 12s from 167° (SSE)

2.6ft @ 13s from 154° (SSE)

2.7ft @ 13s from 151° (SSE)

Southerly energy at the buoys went down in period, but it's still there. As reported, yesterday the waves on the Lahaina side were knee to waist, occasionally chest high.

North shore
6ft @ 9s from 68° (ENE)

Another day of wind and windswell on the north shore.

Wind map at noon

North Pacific shows a fairly big fetch NW of us, but only its tail is oriented towards us. Its head is oriented towards the mainland and hopefully we'll get a bit of angular spreading of that energy. First significant pulse of NW swell will be here on Friday and next week doesn't look too bad from the NW energy point of view. Still plenty wind, so pretty blown out.
The map also shows the windswell fetch, which I forgot to circle.

Nothing on offer in the South Pacific today.

Morning sky.
