Wednesday 3 15 23 morning call

There have been so many days of Kona that winging up the coast with it is not a novelty anymore. Yesterday I even caught a few chest high waves at Spartans reef... just to claim it.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion

South shore

  • 2ft
    , 13s, SSW 205º


  • 1.7ft
    , 12s, SSW 200º
  • 1.3ft
    , 7s, SW 225º

Small SSW energy continues at the buoys (Barbers is back online). Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency.

North shore
Kaneohe Bay

  • 1.7ft
    , 10s, NE 35º


  • 1.5ft
    , 9s, N 10º

That's all folks, what you see at the two buoys above is all that there is in the north shore waters. Extremely minimal for this time of the year, but you can tell this is a very unusual weather pattern. That's too bad, otherwise the waves would be totally epic with this light Kona stuff. Instead, I'm gonna call Hookipa mostly flat with occasional waist high bombs.
