scroll down to the bottom of the page and look at swell heights. Over the past few hours, some long period swells are showing. AND yes there is 17 second periods showing...
If you moused over the buoy maps right now you would not see the long period swell because the latest hourly summary doesn't have the long period swell, but if you go to the link above you will notice 3 the long period swell showing this morning. We will making buoy history graphs sometime in the near future.

not hating...when I see an increase in the dom/avg wave period, that's when i'll get a bit more excited....
I'm going out on a limb and guessing that 'oipaul' stands for 'oak island' or maybe
'ocean isle', but not 'oregon inlet'. If that's the case, enjoy your regular ankle to shin-high
swell down there, bud. You've already had your chest high day for the year...rip it up!
