I would suggest getting off the internet and actually look at the ocean. surfed 2-3 hours at Roosevelt Ave in Long Beach. It was easily head high, with well overhead sets. and then there would be a bomb set come through every now and then.
While that is just my subjective opinion, here is some objective, scientific proof. Swellinfo forecasted a 5 foot swell. Buoys were between 7-8 feet all day, with a long period.
But please, stay in your mom's basement, looking at swell cams, and telling us how small it was.
ha ok billy bad ass.. maybe it was bigger as the swell was reinforced during the afternoon.. during the morning in central there wasn't 9 footers coming in
