Surfed Ocean City, MD on Wednesday. Pretty small until the afternoon. Things certainly improved with the incoming tide with 2-3-4' surf and the occasional, inconsistent 5' set. As with most long period ground swells in the Delmarva area, there were only a select few spots that were holding it with good shape.
Buoys are up today. 3-4-5' at 14-15secs, so plenty of energy out there. This swell isn't going to be as big as orginial predicted, due to the fact that Helene's northward motion is earlier than anticipated, but the swell should slowly increase through Saturday.
Frontal system approaches the coast Friday into Saturday.... so shifting winds over the next few days, but it appears that many spots along the east coast will see periods of clean conditions.
the swell was weird yesterday...bouys showed 4ft around 15secs but it was flat in N. Monmouth county. Went about 30 mins south and caught a few fun ones but it was pretty closed out. This goes back to my argument that few places in jersey can hold a long period swell, definitely have seen this in the past and are seeing it now.
