    Yeah, that makes sense.

    Actually it was down south in Cabo. Up in the Sea of Cortez past Pionta Perfecta at a place called Fish Camps. Everthing else could not handle the swell (ie. zippers, shipwrecks, 9 palms).

    On the right swell direction there definitely is some swell moving directly where i am located due to the canyon.

Walk into your local shop and tell an employee that you rode a 20' wave in the mid atlantic and see the look you get.
    yeah...it seems to me all of the mid atlantic canyons are way out on the shelf/slope in hundreds of feet of water and have little or no effect at all on 5-10 foot swell. I'm sure micah could elaborate...

    I think some of the inlets and inlet shoals focus swell a little and can peak things up a bit i.e. turn 2 foot swell lines into maybe 3-4 foot a-frames under the right conditions...

    The hudson cayon at 50+ miles off the coast is diffenently comparible to the PR Trench or the submaire cayon at puerto. The next XXL winner is from Monouth County You kill it dip5hit
