Monday 8 8 22 morning call

No photos from yesterday, recently Jesse Richman posted this.

7am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 2.2ft
    , 8s, S 175º
  • 1ft
    , 13s, SSW 200º


  • 2.7ft
    , 8s, S 170º

  • 0.8ft
    , 14s, SSW 195º

Small energy at the buoys. That solitary foot at 13-14s is from the fetch SE of New Zealand on July 31st.

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

North shore


  • 5ft
    , 5s, E 95º
  • 1ft
    , 8s, NE 45º

The 8s NE windswell is down to only one foot, the shorter period easterly one should pick up in the next few days as a consequence of the strengthening trades. Home guess for Hookipa is thigh to waist high.

Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found here.
