Brother Mau fly out.
McGregor was packed in the glassy morning, less crowded but a bit choppy around 1pm on my way to work.
Meanwhile, on the north shore the NW swell picked solidly as predicted. Jimmie Hepp has a whole gallery of pictures.
He also took this classic shot of Robby Naish.
2-3am significant buoy readings and discussion.
3.6ft @ 14s from 198° (SSW)
3.9ft @ 14s from 190° (S)
Period down to 14s, but heights still up in the high threes, today should be smaller than yesterday (when Lahaina had up to occasional double overhead sets), but still solid head high plus. Check the webcam before going.
5.4ft @ 10s from 339° (NNW)
4ft @ 11s from 329° (NW)
The NW001 buoy has a solid 10s reading leftover from the NW swell (but the NW101 doesn't), but the graph of Hanalei below clearly show that the swell peaked yesterday. It will be smaller today, but probably still fun size. Hard to say without Waimea and Pauwela.
Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has the three fetches in the picture, all pretty weak.
South Pacific has a weak distant S fetch. The yellow one has the usual question mark, 'cause we can't know for sure if it's aiming at us.
