Saturday 8 4 18 morning call

A SUP foiling session for me yesterday. Here's some more footage of the M2O race of Nate Van Vuuren. I share it because it's available. Haven't seen any footage of Kai, which is a bit shocking.

And a couple of shots of the young South African.

Got my eyes on that Signature foil from the very first time I saw it.

3am significant buoy readings
South shore

2.6ft @ 12s from 144° (SE)

2.4ft @ 11s from 135° (SE)

2.3ft @ 12s from 172° (S)

1.5ft @ 13s from 177° (S)

1.7ft @ 13s from 185° (S)

South swell slowly going down in period, but still hanging in there. I should be able to report pretty early today.

North shore
6.1ft @ 8s from 65° (ENE)

Pretty solid windswell and from a good direction, Hookipa will have waves.

Non updated wind map at noon.

North Pacific has three fetches:
- a distant and weak WSW one associated with a typhoon south of Japan
- a much closer but still weak N one associated with a low forming in the gulf of Alaska
- the windswell fetch

South Pacific has a small/weak fetch N of New Zealand and a much stronger one E of it. Surfline predicts 2.8f 15s on Saturday 8 11 to grace the annual Ole longboard contest at Launiupoko with some great waves.

Morning sky.
