Wednesday 4 4 18 morning call

No water action for me yesterday. I was slightly tempted by the many foilers riding the inside at Hookipa at sunset, but it didn’t look particularly epic, so I decided that my body could use a full day of rest.

4am significant buoy readings
South shore
No indication of southerly energy at the buoys, the Surfline forecast calls for 0.9f 11s, but it’s going to be onshore.

North shore

2.9ft @ 8s from 358° (N)                      
0.9ft @ 14s from 319° (NW)
2.5ft @ 9s from 5° (N)

Very small energy from the north should make for one of the smallest mornings of the year so far. The small 14s reading at Hanalei is a sign of new NW energy from the fetch we observed in the last couple of days. As calculated in the Buoys to Maui travel times and Maui’s shadow lines post, the travel time at 14s from Hanalei to us is 9h, so expect a small bump in the afternoon.

Wind map at noon.
North Pacific shows a NW and a tiny N fetch.
South Pacific has a couple of scattered small fetches that I didn’t deem worth circling.
