Wednesday 9 15 21 morning call

Another bout of foil gear testing yesterday for me. 

4am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

1.7ft @ 17s from 214° (SW)
0.9ft @ 13s from 190° (S)

Long period Tasman Sea energy continues at Barbers. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
4.1ft @ 8s from 48° (NE)

No more 11s northerly energy at the buoy, but 4ft 8s from 48 should still provide with some mushy waves. Home guess for Hookipa and eastern exposures is waist to chest high.

Forecast and energy spectrum of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
