Saturday 3 6 21 morning call

Ian Walsh yesterday at Hookipa.

Slightly better shape at Honolua. Will Hunt posted this photo by Gurumateo.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
1.1ft @ 20s from 202° (SSW)


1ft @ 20s from 198° (SSW)

Mystery source one foot 20s is at the buoys. Pat Caldwell couldn't find a source either: No sources beyond background were identified in the southern hemisphere last week into this week. Heights should remain at a seasonal minimum March 6-10. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
5.9ft @ 12s from 20° (NNE)

9.5ft @ 14s from 348° (NNW)


6.8ft @ 13s from 341° (NNW)
5.1ft @ 8s from 16° (NNE)

Below are the maps of March 3 through 5 that show the fetch that generated the NNW energy we're going to have for the next few days. Notice how it'ss much bigger at the N buoy compared to the NW one, sign that it's stronger to the east.

Honolua will have waves again. Home guess for Hookipa is double overhead.

Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found here (click on animation of the 10 meter column).
