    waves go bye bye

    The surf timeline looks an awful like summer. Hopefully it is a short lived pattern...

    grovelled for two hours today in freezing cols water trying to soak up the last of this swell...

    Cant really complain though...wasnt this basically a unusually far north Bermuda High/trade wind swell that lasted for a solid 5-6 days? I mean it filled in last Friday if i recall, and there were still small long period lines this afternoon.

    Yes, very unusual, but I definitely wouldnt call it a Bermuda high swell.
    The high pressure was in the far north Atlantic (not common), with a small area of low pressure to the south generating the pressure gradient. Generally it is the opposite (Icelandic Low and High in he Central waters).

    In a Bermuda High scenario, you have the High Pressure much further to the south around Bermuda (go figure), which generates East-Southeast fetch south of the high (north of Puerto Rico).

    It was a nice little run for sure... If only this was common place.
