    40 ft @ 14 secs with 50 mph onshore winds in Tybee Island, GA saturday morning. Sounds about right to me.

    My guess is some swell in frisco cape hatteras. More swell to emerald isle and topsail. South carolina should get some decent swell. I think i might try to take off IF it stays on course and see what emerald isle and topsail would do with some swell. I havn't been there for a while. Or just swallow the 12 hour ride and head to fl for a few days haha.

    E.I does not hold a swell. I've seen it good there once about 7 years ago. I Was down that way for igor last year and the forcast called for well overhead. It was 3-4 ft closeouts at best by the pier. My guess for this one would be VAS but we'll see.

    One thing is for sure, I won't in town for the eventual cleaned up remnants of the swell. Sucks...

    I have scored EI clean green and barreling its nuts off while the rest of the coast was ugly side shore closeouts. Takes the right conditions, just like any beach break. Patience, grasshopper.

    Too close to the coast. Any surf will be blown out or beat down by 25mph+ offshores.

    Ya'll should read Jeff Master's blog on a daily basis for an informed guess at what hurricanes are going to do....I see that SwellInfo added it to his Hurricane Forecast page as well:

    This is unreasonably high... and has been corrected on the site.
