Friday 7 2 21 morning call

Lahaina had overhead sets yesterday.

Inside of the same wave. I had three wonderful sessions (SUP surfing, SUP foiling and shortboarding) all of which offered excellent rides.

3-4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore

3ft @ 13s from 188° (S)
1.8ft @ 18s from 198° (SSW)


2.3ft @ 13s from 183° (S)
1.7ft @ 18s from 209° (SSW)

Both buoys show the solid and continuing 13s energy but also a mysterious 18s one that is not present in any forecastPACIOOS page.

It's definitely not the early arrival of the big swell predicted for Monday, as that one has just started to rise at the Samoa buoy that is reading a whopping 6.6ft @ 18s from 181° (S) (still rising dark blue line in the graph below).

The post

Buoys to Maui travel times and Maui's shadow lines

shows that at 18s it takes 3.3d from there to here.

Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

3.7ft @ 6s from 71° (ENE)
3.2ft @ 7s from 77° (ENE)

Small easterly windswell at Pauwela. Hookipa virtually flat, maybe tiny waves at Pavils.

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