    east coast Atlantic big wave expedition?

    has it been done yet? look over at Europe and naz and ireland. there has to be a east coast mavericks 20-100 miles off the coast. somewhere... i know a guy who was one of the first surfers in the area here and back in the 70s had a freak swell with 25 foot waves breaking about a mile out of south car.

    Pump House off FL went off at like 15+ during last years cane swells I think it was. During Earl Holden Beach NC was like 10-12. I think what you mean is Cortez type waves that far off shore and a big as Naz. There is an article in a past Surfer about the Hobgoods taking a boat way out of FL for something similar so yes it has been checked. Just look at charts and see if you find any large sea mounts then grab a big boat and go!

    I was at Holden for Sandy and it was the most surreal thing I've ever seen. 6-8' left barrels for over 500 yards at least. That day I was glad to be goofy.

    Yeah Holden gets good on the cane swells. This was Earl 2 years ago I think it was.
