Friday 2 19 21 morning call

Thanks to Renew Your Spirit for the donation.
No photos from yesterday, this is another spectacular image from that epic day at the Bay a couple of weeks ago. As I wrote, many pros came over from Oahu, this is Griffin Colapinto. Photo by OneMoreFoto.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.6ft @ 11s from 264° (W)

Minimal westerly energy at Lanai, check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency, but there's nothing.

North shore
4.8ft @ 11s from 334° (NNW)


6.5ft @ 8s from 47° (NE)
3.1ft @ 11s from 333° (NNW)

While the last bales of NW energy keep trickling down, the windswell is on the rise at Pauwela. Home guess for Hookipa is peaky head high plus with a bit of wind.

Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found at link n.-2 of GP's meteo websites list in the right column (click on animation of the 10 meter column). Two days old.

Today's wind map is a good example of why the Pacioos maps are easier to read. The map shown has winds 0-5 on the west side but it is hard for me to tell if it is onshore or offshore. Pacioos it is really easy to see which it is.
