    Question Overhead Swell Disappears Into Thin Air?

    I'm NOT blaming swellinfo for this in any way, as every single other report did the same thing(so I'm assuming the weather pattern just veered off or something), but from about 3 or 4 days ago until mid-day today the buoys for friday were at like 11 feet forecasting solid overhead surf..then all of a sudden, *poof*...nada. It actually says flat..looks like mother nature changed her mind at the last minute and really stiffed us over the next few days. Keeping the fingers crossed. Then again, there have been a couple randomly good days here or there regardless of what the forecasts are saying. I don't see any reason why it would be totally flat though..there has to be at least something from this system. As I said, I attribute this to the ocean's unpredictable nature, not bad forecasting. Still really bummed though.. Any Thoughts?

    Click. Pay. Click. Pay. Eventually you'll learn: anything 'free' is not, actually, free.

    (Put the safety lock back on the pea shooters, kidz. Just funnin'.)

    And anything forecasted more than 2 days out is vapor, sweet dreams & quite possibly 23' for the shredmachine.
