The Surf Professor
Aloha E world and welcome to the weather blog!

Aloha Everyone, for my first blog near the start of fall 2013 I would like to thank my friend Kaleo for his call last weekend. Both he and I saw our first manu Kolea (Golden Plover bird) had returned from the north (like, Alaska!) after their migration home. They spend the cold months here. It is customary to observe here in Hawaii that a North swell follows their arrival within two weeks... September 1st we shall see! 


Right now High pressure dominates the Pacific, with potential for a south swell next week. 13 years ago a huge south swell came on September 1st, 1999. I broke my leg surfing big west side, it was epic! The latest weather map does show a cut-off low pressure, a Kona low, forming close to the northwest, thus lightening up our tradewinds. I would be surprised if this source produced waves for us, but there is good potential for it! We shall see!!!

Aloha e, Kumu Ian

ps. apologies to those users who have seen my older blogs--apparently my browser did not show them so I always saw a blank page. Change browsers, and it works! Sorry for the duplications, hopefully I have figured it out!
