What's the difference between the two on the buoy data? Since I've been looking at the buoys, which isn't very long, I've noticed that the wave data is always larger with a shorter period. So my guess is the wave data is local wind driven conditions and the swell data is the ground swell from wherever. Is that right?
How does it translate to beach conditions? Obviously each beach is different but are there any rules of thumb?
