The birth of a new anti-hero: Kai Penny.
4am significant buoy readings
1.9ft @ 16s from 210° (SSW)
1.4ft @ 16s from 206° (SSW)
That is confirmed by the graph of the Samoa buoy below. As calculated in the post Buoys to Maui travel times and Maui's shadow lines, the travel time for 20s from there to here is only about 3 days, so the remaining energy of those 4ft 20s that happened on Tuesday should be here tomorrow. My least favorite kind of swell: big, hyped and during a weekend. Plus, most spots that work with medium period and sizes (Ukumehame for example) will be closing out most of the times.
3.3ft @ 8s from 61° (ENE)
Pure and relatively small windswell at the buoy, Hookipa is going to be close to flat, better size could be found on the east facing shores.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has the same two small NW fetches it had yesterday.
Nothing of relevance from the south. The blue fetches automatically generated on the great circle rays map on the right are not going to do much for us, as 20-25 knots are not enough to create waves that are big enough to travel all the way up here.
