obviously surf is best with offshore winds, but what about when the wind is offshore but gusting and consistently in the 20 MPH range. For example saturday's forecast in NJ is calling for a bit of swell and 20MPH generally offshore winds.

On Swellinfo that puts us in the Green i.s. clean conditions. However, surfline forecast is poor to fair and the wind chart is in the red.

anyone have an opinion or insight what consitutes too much offshore wind?
