Surf shot of the day is this thick lip at the break Cokes in the Maldives. Photo by Madlives Surf Photographer.

Jimmie Hepp was at Hookipa to shoot the windsurfers. Results in this gallery.

6am significant buoy readings and discussion
South shore
2.2ft @ 13s from 181° (S)
2.2ft @ 7s from 171° (S)
1.5ft @ 16s from 198° (SSW)

2.6ft @ 7s from 177° (S)
2ft @ 12s from 181° (S)
1.5ft @ 16s from 198° (SSW)

Fun long period numbers (although declining) at the buoy with some 12-13s leftover energy. I left the 7s energy too, 'cause yesterday it was clearly present in the lineup (unwelcomed). There's waves also today, check the webcam yourself before going.

North shore
2.1ft @ 10s from 324° (NW)

1.6ft @ 11s from 317° (NW)

5.3ft @ 8s from 65° (ENE)

Slivers of leftover NW energy at the local NW facing buoys, also today it should be mostly about the windswell at Hookipa (and on east facing exposures).

Wind map at noon.

North Pacific has a pretty big windswell fetch.

South Pacific has a nice fetch in the Tasman Sea. The black circled part will be blocked by New Zealand.

Morning sky.
