Thursday 8 18 22 morning call

This is my first impression of the Triton T1 monowing.

6am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

  • 1.1ft
    , 12s, SSW 195º


  • 0.9ft
    , 14s, S 185º

Very small southerly energy at the buoys. Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore

  • 1.6ft
    , 9s, NNW 340º


  • 2.3ft
    , 9s, N 10º


  • 1.6ft
    , 9s, N 350º


  • 1.8ft
    , 8s, E 100º

Very small easterly windswell at Mokapu with the addition of very small northerly energy coming down the island chain. Below are the maps of August 14 through 16 that show the weak fetch that generated it. Nothing to be excited about.

Home guess for Hookipa is flat with occasional little northerly sets probably around waist high.

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