Looks like the remnants of Dorian should still bring us a little swell down here in NC. I'm not complaining though, fun short period windswell in the water now. Around waist to chest and glassy this morning with no one in the water.
No one should use the Hawaiin scale. Hawaiins are all wannabe gangsters and ice freaks. Oh they eat plate lunches too. A two story wave is NOT 8 foot. Man, those dudes are crazy. It will be four foot and they'll all be(insert Spicoli voice here) "Ho brah, shoots no waves, I tink any good. Let's go poun da kooks."
Here's how decent folk line it up:
1 Foot - knee high
2 Foot - thigh to aboot waist high
3 Foot - waist to stomach .......There is 2-3 foot(small) and 2-3 foot(big)
4 Foot - chest to neck
5 Foot - head high
6 foot - aboot a foot over a grown man's head. Look at your doorways in a normal home. 6 foot is a bit bigger than the top of the doorway
Don't start saying it's overhead until it is over 6 Foot.
KOKI - I love you, too. And as a matter of fact I said to myself, a few times this summer, " Where's Koki Barrels at?"
Mr. Yankee, you really need to start agreeing with me more often. The world will be a better place if FRIGGIN PEOPLE WOULD JUST START THINKING LIKE ME !! Whoooaaa got a little excited there.
And just to clarify, I wasn't being insultive when I axed if the SE was flat. Just wondering that's all. It's not like I'm going to check reports or cams for Florida. Ya know what it is that I be sayin' ?
Groundbreaking Update #2....It is flat as a sheet of glass here in South Florida..... and the Euro model was right again. Stay tuned for more Groundbreaking Updates.....
Paddington: Your scale is off. You're not taking into account the swell period. 2ft at 6 seconds vs 2ft at 15 seconds are completely different. That's how the Hawaiins measure the scale. 6ft at 20 seconds hitting the reef at Pipe is going to be pretty damn big.
Not sure where it is waist to chest, but I was out there for 3 hours today around high tide. Mostly knee high, with an occasional set slightly bigger. Nothing close to what some are reporting. I was getting some really long rides. I am looking forward to more clean knee high rides on Tuesday. I just wish it were a foot or two larger.
