Saturday 8 17 19 morning call

Didn’t have time to drive south yesterday morning, so I surfed Hookipa, which was a 1.5. Here’s Deneb trying unsuccessfully to make something out of virtually nothing. A bit of exercise, that’s what it was.

4am significant buoy readings and discussion
South shore
Barbers
2.2ft @ 13s from 250° (WSW)

1.9ft @ 9s from 171° (S)                        
1ft @ 11s from 203° (SSW)
 
Lanai
2.5ft @ 14s from 269° (W)

2.2ft @ 8s from 169° (SSE)
 
Hanalei
2.4ft @ 13s from 278° (W)
 
West swell still in the water but smaller than the past few days. Background south energy down to a minimum. Today it will be a small day everywhere, it’s a good thing that the Ole at Launiupoko is a longboard contest…
 
North shore
Mokapu
3.8ft @ 7s from 87° (E)

3.5ft @ 8s from 95° (E)
 
Hilo
5.9ft @ 8s from 96° (E)
 
Windswell trending up a bit, Hookipa might have tiny windy waves, bigger on eastern exposures.
 
Wind map at noon.
 
North Pacific only has the windswell fetch.
 
Nice but fairly weak S fetch in the South Pacific.
