Wednesday 3 25 20 morning call

Pretty massive day of action on the south facing shores yesterday, I did a bit of reporting effort.

Wailea side by James Flynn.

Ricardo Campello posted this photo of La Perouse. A windsurf mast is 4m=13ft.

These are some pics I took. Not the best direction for Maalaea, but a swell this big will get pretty much everywhere facing south. Just too windy to be good, in this case.

Love the no grab glide.

First time I see this spot surfed.

Surfing is officially OK. (from this page).

4am significant buoy readings and discussion
South shore
4.5ft @ 15s from 193° (SSW)

3.1ft @ 15s from 199° (SSW)

Pretty good numbers at the buoys also today, the swell only went down a second or two in period (so it's going to be smaller than yesterday). Check the Lahaina webcam if interested for size and conditions. Looks smaller than yesterday, but how about this set at 6.05am?!

North shore
12ft @ 9s from 54° (ENE)

Pretty big windswell will provide blown out waves to the north and east facing shores.

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

Those NW fetches are small/weak, the most significant one is the windswell fetch.

Decent fetch in the Tasman Sea down under. Fiji is having a great early start of the season. Must also be uncrowded because of the travelling restrictions.

Morning sky.

So please tell me
Are surfers out at Hookipa?
Are you allowed to park there?
