Tuesday 3 30 21 morning call

Robby Naish posted this high jump on wingfoil gear.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
2.4ft @ 17s from 180° (S)


2.9ft @ 15s from 181° (S)

Both buoys confirm the presence of long period southerly energy in the water. There's head high sets in Lahaina, but, due to the long travel distance and the angular spreading (fetch was aimed mostly to the Americas, as we saw yesterday) the consistency is relatively low. Gorgeous conditions though.
Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
2.1ft @ 11s from 345° (NNW)


3.9ft @ 7s from 75° (ENE)
3.2ft @ 9s from 78° (ENE)
2.6ft @ 11s from 346° (NNW)

Still some leftover NNW energy at Waimea and Pauwela, but it's really trickling down to nothing. New WNW swell predicted for tomorrow. Home guess for Hookipa is waist to chest with flat spells. No to light wind in the morning.
