cool. thanks for the info. I still am not going to sway away from the fact that there could be an impact on the deep water swells. Like South Bethany mentioned there could be a refraction influence which will bend the offshore swells into certain areas.
For any OCMD locals, there is a reason why the 48th street area tends to pick up swells better than other areas and that has to do with the offshore bathymetry focusing the energy into that mid oc area, especially on North swells.
Interesting, I wondered why midtown seemed to pick up swells a bit better.
