Tuesday 5 4 21 morning call

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
No southerly energy at the buoys. Check the Lahaina or Kihei webcams if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
2.8ft @ 11s from 310° (WNW)


3.4ft @ 13s from 320° (NW)
2.5ft @ 10s from 323° (NW)


4.2ft @ 9s from 71° (ENE)
3.3ft @ 12s from 314° (NW)

NW energy still at 3.3ft 12s at Pauwela will give Hookipa waves in the head high range. A morning of calm wind will make the conditions very good, possibly excellent.
