Sunday 5 20 17 morning call

Shortboard, prone foiling and longboard sessions for me yesterday.

Brother Alika is not a light weight, but he flies pretty high (bit too high in this case).

Chuck got the pump back out dialed and he will be the guy to blame for my upcoming heart attack while trying to do the same. SO much work.

Thanks to the bypass, this beach became one of the quietest beaches I've ever been on Maui. Absolutely delightful, but it's not gonna last long, as I presume they're going to open that short piece of road again when they're finished with the construction.

And while I was doing all that I was doing (including being at work at 2pm), the windsurfers were hitting the waves at Hookipa. The photos are by Jimmie Hepp from this gallery.

Dear Surfline, is that waist or stomach high? Maybe they use Hawaiian body parts...

4am significant buoy readings
South shore

3.4ft @ 17s from 140° (SE)

3ft @ 15s from 172° (S)

3.4ft @ 17s from 154° (SSE)

The numbers at the buoys are the biggest of the season so far, and today is going to be the biggest day so far. Waves and high crowds everywhere from Makena to Lahaina is my easy prediction on a sunny Sunday.

North shore
7.1ft @ 8s from 77° (ENE)
3.7ft @ 11s from 347° (NNW)
Decent numbers at Pauwela for this time of the year, the windsurfers will have fun again.

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific shows a NW, a NNW and E windswell fetch.

South Pacific offers a fetch in the Tasman Sea.
