    Yeah, it does feel like a bad dream. Definitely smaller than forecasted. I find the surfer view site is funny. That guy cuts and pastes the exact forecasts from the forecasting sites. He obviously never checks it. He's saying it's head high to overhead today, lol

    Agreed. Last time I checked 3 of 28 cams worked, 1 was in California the other 2 were Central America. The Central America cams were just old cam loops. They do not indicate if and why the cams are down or if they will be back up either. Pretty weak. It's all about the "clicks". Perspective advertisers look at how many clicks the site gets and determine whether or not the ad cost is worth it. The whole site is set up for us to be excessively clicking around to support that. It's pretty annoying and the reason I mostly avoid the site.

    Where are you? It's well overhead right now. Wind is insane, but there's some bombs rolling through

    I'm in Monmouth County. What planet are you on, lol? It was chest high with some shoulder waves rolling in. It was fun but I was expecting big barrels with the weather systems that developed. The wind just blew it down fast.

    I must need my eyes checked. I just walked down a few blocks from house and actually surfed it earlier. There were some big ones coming thru every now and then. Consistent chest-shoulder though. How tall are you? Maybe it's better in some other spots but the cams in Manasquan look the same to me. People always differ on how to size a wave. If there are a bunch of people out, it's definitely not overhead.

    Get your eyes checked.... Or maybe the spot you walk to from your house wasn't the best around.... I know what anoverhead wave is. I see a lot of people saying it's head high when it's waist, but that's not today. It is overhead today. You will see pics I'm sure. There's not a ot of guys out. Just a few rippers and the photogs that go where they are

    Maybe it is bigger in other spots. Since it was a workday, I didn't really have the time to check a bunch of spots. I spot I surf is usually a good spot and the cams also looked like chest-shoulder. To each their own.
