Tuesday 11 23 21 morning call

Hookipa yesterday mid day.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
South shore
No southerly energy at Barbers. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
3.5ft @ 12s from 333° (NNW)

2.9ft @ 13s from 327° (NW)

3.2ft @ 13s from 330° (NW)

Kaneohe Bay

3.6ft @ 8s from 55° (ENE)
3.3ft @ 7s from 73° (ENE)

First small NW swell of a long series is at the buoys. Below are the fetch maps of Nov 18 through 22 that show the many fetches that will ensure a continuous provisioning of overlapping episodes (biggest on Thanksgiving) till well into the weekend. Home guess for Hookipa in the morning is around head high or more and relatively clean thanks to the lack of wind in the first hours of light.

Forecast of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
