After experiencing some technical difficulties since mid-May, the Kaumalapau (Lanai) buoy returned to service on July 8th. According to the Scripps activity log, the downtime was due to “Telephone Problems,” which have been resolved with a new shore station. The Kaumalapau buoy is an excellent (and pretty much only) nearshore indicator for South swell activity in Hawaii, and is complemented nicely by the open ocean buoys, which are currently all offline or adrift, with the exception of 51003.
