Sunday 3 29 20 morning call

The Corona virus made me lazy and I keep not taking pics of the waves on the Lahaina side. Fortunately, sooner or later, my Facebook feed offers something. Kai Lenny at Jaws by OneMoreFoto.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion
South shore
1.6ft @ 14s from 192° (SSW)

1.5ft @ 14s from 190° (S)

Still 1.5ft 14 at the buoys, I'll take it. According to my fetches maps (I'll post a collage), tomorrow there could be another small, but long period pulse from the Tasman Sea. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
6.5ft @ 9s from 64° (ENE)
4.4ft @ 7s from 60° (ENE)

Another day of pure windswell on the north shore. We haven't seen any other significant fetches in the North Pacific, that's why. Hookipa will have waves in the head high range, bigger on eastern exposures.

Wind map at noon (the other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column).

North Pacific fetches map (about 4 days travel time from the NW corner)
A couple of small/weak NW fetches and the windswell fetch (getting weaker).

South Pacific fetches map (about 7 days travel time from east of New Zealand)
Nothing today.
