Funny, if you look back the last 2 yrs, we've had a decent sized swell in the same weekend. Im sure if it because it's my daughters birthday, and we leave at 4am to hit Narragansett the past 2 yrs... Hopefully now 3 yrs
I agree that you just can't trust the models because there is just nothing about these massive systems that acts according to a rule book. That being said, I've already taken Monday and Tuesday off. Kneeling south and praying. Come on up to NC, Irene, stall out there for a day or two and keep spinning for us. Ground Swell, baby, ground swell.
If you can, try for somewhere you can surf both a south and an east facing beach. As it stands now, looking like all day friday and early saturday am will be the best chances for some long walled bombs.
