Looks like the a.m. gamble paid off for one lucky fellow. There’s a few barrels to be found, but they require a bit of patience and luck to pick off. The new Northwest swell is here, but a bit disorganized and jumbled this morning, as expected given the moderate 11-second swell period.
The second Northwest pulse is being reported by the Northwest Hawaii buoy, which looks to have peaked at 7:00 a.m. at 16.4 feet at 12.9 seconds. Surf will likely become even more jumbled as that pulse fills over the existing Northwest swell this afternoon.
Winds are currently light to dead, with a slight Northwest flow, but overall clean and glassy conditions. Seems like it’s going to be a hot day, which could mean interior land heating and onshore conditions by mid-day, although the winds are forecast to clock ENE. Another roll of the dice?
