More and more sites are agreeing with the wind change. MSW is saying Its going to be getting even BIGGER on Saturday/Sunday, Surfline's 14 day forecast says the swell will continue until Monday.
\nI guess friday still is the day.

The 12z run of the GFS just came out and continues with the idea that Leslie stalls for a few days near Bermuda. When Leslie starts moving again, it's progged to move slowly toward the east coast before recurving. The key will be if/where the east coast cold front stalls or hangs up, and its directional orientation when it does (east-west, noth-south, etc.)
\nAgain, the specifics and timing will probably change 50 times between now and end of next week, but the trend here is very promising. We should see multiple days of big swells.

I'm just hoping there's some left over for Saturday and Sunday as those are the only days I can get down :/

I think you'll be in luck. It helps, too, that this storm is so big.

Leslie pushed back a few days?
I decided to make this it's own thread.
Right now Leslie looks to stall from Wednesday at 2am until Friday at 2pm (thats as far as forecast goes) right UNDER and BEFORE Bermuda. So this swell has to go until at least Saturday right?
If this actually happens with the stall, and it moves up the coast slower, wouldn't it be better on Friday and Saturday than Wednesday and Thursday?
Also, I checked multiple sites regarding the wind being NNW on Wednesday, but the majority that update every hour have it going on-shore on Wednesday into Thursday night and not switching to NNW/NW until Friday. Is there a chance that all of this is going to be pushed back into the weekend? And by "this" i mean clean big waves with nice conditions.
Here's one site that I've found trustworthy (and yes it takes into account the Hurricane as you can tell by the wave height being 6-8 ft): http://www.windfinder.com/forecast/cape_may_harbor#
