Monday 5 29 23 morning call

While I was trying to fix my Windows 7 computer (which I eventually succeeded to do), I made a brief attempt to use to a Mac, but I got immediately frustrated by the lack of a proper delete key (!!). No photos from yesterday, this is a photo of Hookipa at sunset on Saturday evening that I was going to post yesterday.

5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.

South shore

    • 1.9ft
      , 15s, SSW 195º
    • 1.6ft
      , 13s, S 185º


    • 2.1ft
      , 15s, SSW 200º

    • 0.9ft
      , 12s, S 185º

The leftover of Tasman Sea swells that were massive at Cloudbreak continue to arrive on our southern shores. Below are the maps of May 18 to 23 that show the fetches that generated them.

Check the Lahaina webcam if interested, for size, conditions and consistency. There's some good size sets.

North shore


  • 2.3ft
    , 14s, WNW 300º


  • 2.1ft
    , 14s, NW 310º


  • 1.6ft
    , 15s, WNW 300º


    • 2.6ft
      , 8s, NNE 30º
    • 2.9ft
      , 5s, ENE 70º

    The upstream buoys show a small WNW swell in the 2ft 14s range.
    Below are the maps of May 24 through 27 that show the fetch that
    generated it. Not much to be expected on our north shore due to its
    small size and westerly direction, but Hookipa might have
    inconsistent waist to shoulder high sets from it. Flat elsewhere.

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