It was horrible everywhere today, especially this evening, just flat out horrible I tell ya
yo bro Ryan- you always get the sweet pics!!! But you are right, it looks flat to me, i wouldn't paddle out... Yesterday was ng- i couldn't even get rides all the way to the beach!
Fun all day yesterday...these are from the morning.
I love October
Crowds are gone and barrels to catch
Please send more swell soon
Reporting from Brevard county, was solid head high barreling beach break with larger sets up until noon, then the tide dropped and still was good, semi textured but more inconsistent. Great day! Drove from the Gulf solo and scored!
I was at 5 different spots yesterday in Monmouth county. There were def a couple sets in the2 ft overhead range but mostly head high. It was definetly larger in southern mo. Co compared to spots further north. The spots that were real good had a ridiculous crowd on it. I've was seriously shocked at a southern mo. Co spot that's usually smaller than everywhere else was bigger than everywhere else. still don't understand how 3.3 at 10 sec with a sse angle can translate to overhead close out for lots of mo. Co spots, just when we think you have it dialed you get under gunned.
Offshore buoys were running around 4.3 ft @ 14 seconds yesterday.
Swellinfo model was hitting this pretty much right on target when we look at model output at the buoy locations. We take into account swell data that is closer to the coast then most of these buoys which are 20+ miles offshore. This difference between offshore and nearshore swells can be a tricky calculation with longer period swells on the shallow continental shelf.
Having said all that Swellinfo is definitely on the conservative side for long period swells - at least right now.
