Surf Scale:d-oh to t-oh?
How come you always see D-oh with occassional t-oh sets? How come it's never 1-2ft over d-oh?

I'm pretty sure there's a good 6 ft between d-oh and t-oh. What's the deal?

simplicity?

or maybe when its that big, the bigger sets that roll in are that much larger. maybe kinda like when its low, the "bigger sets" are only 6" - 1' larger, and when its medium height they are 1' -2' and when its d oh its 4' - 6' higher.

just guesses :cool:

when it gets that big, the forecasts become more generalized.
double o
double o+
double o, occ. triple o
etc.

Because it's generally harder to judge the size when it's that big?

I thought it was becasue the math became difficult, e.g., for a 5' kid 2x = 10', but for a 6' stud, it is 12'. 3x is 15' and 18', so 2x to 3x could be 10' to 18'. WTF???

I have trouble judging the size of a "3' wave" - if it is like the usual punchless stuff it is more like 1' and if it has energy it is more like 4' to 5' here.
