Monday 4 12 21 morning call

No photos from yesterday, this is a shot from Ben Thouard. I believe it's Ace Buchan entering the wall of Teahopoo to avoid the closeout.

4-5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

2ft @ 17s from 244° (WSW)
1.2ft @ 12s from 173° (S)


1.9ft @ 17s from 203° (SSW)
0.9ft @ 14s from 185° (S)
0.9ft @ 13s from 186° (S)

Lovely long period SSW energy at the buoys, check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
5.6ft @ 15s from 304° (WNW)

2.9ft @ 15s from 311° (NW)


2.4ft @ 9s from 46° (NE)
1.7ft @ 16s from 316° (NW)

New small NW energy is on the rise all day. Below are the maps of April 7 through 11 that show the distant fetch that generated it.

Below are the graphs of NW001 and Pauwela, together with the Surfline forecast (late, as usual).

Home guess for Hookipa is around head high in the sets with spells of smallness and clean.

Forecast and energy spectrum of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.

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