Wednesday 11 3 21 morning call

Wonderful day of big and clean waves everywhere on the north shore yesterday. I gave my longboard session a 9.5, it was really special out there.
Below is one of the first photos of the Jaws session, taken from this Surfline page.
Honolua had waves too, although not as clean as usual, due to the lack of offshore trades.

4am 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
9.8ft @ 14s from 333° (NNW)

10.5ft @ 14s from 315° (NW)

9.4ft @ 15s from 311° (NW)

First extra large swell of the season peaked during the night, but it's still pretty strong at the upstream buoys. Hookipa and most other spots too big for the common mortals. The two spots where to find ridable (although very different) waves are the harbor and Paia Bay.

Forecast of Pauwela from this PACIOOS page.
