    gotta find that shelter if that will even help with the big helping of slop we're in store for.

    South faceing beaches prob best and hold more size. There could be a few windows that open up for some fun surf.

    Frisco/Ocracoke/Cape Lookout are the only spots I can think of anywhere close to here...

    quick question about this storm: Will this increase water temps, or will they stay around the same?

    Oh and one more thing: Are storms like this better if they are closer, or farther from shore? Would swell period increase if the storm was closer or farther? How would it being closer affect the winds?

    (Sorry didnt know where else to find this info)

    Farther from shore is better ... the wave period increases the farther the wave has to travel, and in our case on the east-coast, we won't get caught with winds coming out of a generally northward direction due to the counter-clock-wise rotation of the storm's inflow at sea-level.

    EI, Cape Lookout and the other S facing spots are showing 27+ mph offshore. Faces should be nice and groomed but might be hard to get over the ledge with near 30 mph winds holding you up. I'm guessing if the forecast holds true very few folks will paddle out. Last Wed we had 4-5 ft at 13 seconds and although it was very good there were a ton of closeouts. What do you think 8-12 ft at 13 sec will produce on the beachbreaks, walls of whitewater with no hope of duckdiving. Unless you find a spot with deep water (inlets) or a channel to get out through I think it will be a futile effort. This is the first time I think I have actually wanted a swell to drop a little.
