Thursday 3 11 21 morning call

After an early morning surf session, I stopped by the harbor on my way to work and took a couple of pics.

Conditions were ideal for foiling, here's the 250 pounds of gentle giant Alika flying like a feather.

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
NDBC servers that process the buoy data are down. Here's a statement from their page:

On 03/09/2021 the NDBC primary processing servers were shut off due to a facilities issue. Station pages on the NDBC website are not updating and there is no ETR at this time.

Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
Pat Caldwell calls for:
3ft 11s NNE
10ft 10s E
1ft 14s NW

Yesterday at sunset Hookipa was head to head and a half and that's my guess also for this morning. Much bigger on eastern exposures.

Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found here (click on animation of the 10 meter column).
24h old.
