So am I correct in recalling that you're from New England (maybe MA, guessing by the name), or at least the northeast? Not complaining about the recent run of surf, it has been a great few weeks, but 5-9 feet consistently? I know everyone's got a slight variation on the wave height scale, but really?
Yes. We had a 7 day stretch in MA where it seldom got below 4, was published on forecast between 4.5-8.5 for 5 days straight and in actuality in some certain spots here they were breaking over 9. Between a storm, lunar forces, and fairly good swell coming in it made for a grand several days. Still is 2.5-5ft here each day although it's waning to around or below 3.
