If you ask the forum for the forecast we'll probably send you to the beach with an 8'0'' gun and a 6\4 wetsuit to ride 2 ft surf in 80 degree water.
    i've been on this site for a while. sometimes monmouth county is effected differently with longer period swells despite what the forecast graph says. my thought is that it'll be smaller here than down south but why not ask the guy that runs the whole thing?

    That is an upper level low. With the majority of the winds higher up, they can't generate swell.

    Motion, you should have more of a grasp on it then SI because you can see in person how certain swells affect your break. It makes a difference when the buoy says 2.6@9SE and you can visually apply that information at your local break. We know how Monmouth County has some kind of refraction shadowing or something that makes it smaller then Ocean county and how sometimes it’s the opposite. SI can't really know those details for every break worldwide or afford the time to figure them out. You’re definitely asking the right person though. It's cool how some swells will creep into weird little nooks and not as cool when you can see them passing by out in the shipping lanes while it's 1 ft on the beach (7.2@8S). Sorry, wasn't trying to be a DB. I just didn't understand.

    Increased wind fetch is due to a pressure gradient... So the high pressure to the north is enhancing the pressure gradient with the broad area of low pressure to the south. This positioning of the High off the East Coast is called a Bermuda High, and that is why I call it a Bermuda high swell.

    To see the wind fetch, go to the wave maps, and zoom out to East Coast. Look north of the Puerto and East of the Bahamas.

    yes i was being silly of course,... just pointing out someone somewhere will end up being uphappy with the end result, never easy trying to figure out what our eyes end up seeing at the local breaks. Hope everyoen will be chill and it works out for all.

    With Micah taking up a thread for the announcement of a swell, if it fails.. it might get ugly around here.

    The buoys are a little behind schedule... But the swell is starting to peak on the outer Hatteras Buoy at 5.2 @ 9 seconds and the S Hatteras Buoy at 5.6 @ 9...

    Outer Banks are looking fun right now and the medium period swells should build into all areas predicted during the day... Its a minor swell to draw attention to, but we haven't had much track worthy in a while.
