Rhody doesn't handle west swells well. SW absolutely, but not a due west swell or wsw(degree of direction and size/period dependant). If you head west over rhode island, you run into land or long island sound, not ocean. Therefore not much fetch. lol

    Not a knock on your site. All the forecasts sites are calling for the swell, but I've seen this scenario before when it's got too much west in it. I HOPE I'm wrong. If the primary direction switches to ssw or even sw we are in business.

    So a swell that's 272 degrees due west is a western swell...

    Macking at .5-.7 feet @ 6 seconds here in CFL, getting big baby, and fast. Gonna do a dawn patrol and call BS on the 1-2 foot forecast.

    I know it's coming swell info, so save me the tomfoolery.
