Models are calling up to 16 sec period waves for wednesday. I thought we only saw those kinds of periods from southern hemi swells or hurricanes. Looks like the waves are coming from a low that is going to build in the north atlantic over the next few days, but we see normally SW-SE wind swell from these lows. What gives? Swellinfo, im thinking you can give a good explination. Also how bad will the continental shelf hurt a swell at this long of a period?
I'm thinking high tide by an inlet is the way to go on this one.
