delaware beaches face between 85 to 90 degrees (due east around fenwick to a little more north as you head north).
maryland faces around 100 to 105(south oc). This makes a big difference. Ocean City will generally big bigger on a steep S swell, while delaware will be cleaner with SW winds.
This is why the 2 forecasts will vary slightly depending on swell direction and winds.
Is there any spots in deleware that have a sandbar ?
Apircot Orchard fires on NW swells. It only breaks on a 3 ft @ 21 seconds megaswell.
