    I'm on call starting tomorrow and running until 8/15 so you guys are guaranteed to get a good swell not only for this one, but at least one more before then.

    I wouldn't plan on anything after 8/15 though, it will be back to 1.7 at 8secs.

    You're welcome...

    zach, just like the days prior to Arty, I'll be down in the Mid-Atlantic again. This time, So. Jerz and Philly area. I'm all wrapped up with my commitments early afternoon Sunday. I'd guess that you'd advise me to head to OBX from there? If things went best-case scenario, perhaps I could chase this swell all the way up the grid and hit it in 5 different places. Baby steps though, and I'll be stoked for a single cane sesh.
    Based on the results last time, Delmarva or Jersey. I guess it's safe to say OBX is always a crap shoot and things can go horribly wrong, horribly fast there. Jersey cause you are close.

    Thanks brah, and I was thinking the same on the roll of the dice in OBX. Rhodey looks like it will get the hype train more than Delmarva or Jerz, at least from the current models. So much can change as that beast is headed north anyway. I'm not against kicking it in Newport again next week and getting stoked to the gills.

    Delmarva and Jersey have many of the attributes that OBX has to take in these swells very nicely. As you move north, its a little trickier. Delmarva and Jers are parked right at the thing and have a lot of deep water not too far off the coast.

    No doubt, I was talking more of the swell not reaching up there on what models show so far. I'm guessing that'll change if the hype train comes to fruition.

    btw bro did you really refer to it as Hurricane BelMar at your local break? That's excellent.

    FLY A BANNER FOR IMPENDING TS BELMAR SWELL

    Not sure if iam the only one, but I find these long range forecast mentally draining....one day, it looks good...next day, it's not looking promising only to go back to being promising. Then when the swell is looking promising, then you have to hope the winds cooperate.

    Haha right on coop, but is it any different than dealing with the emotional inconsistency of wahines? This is why I bought the Carver, exactly a year ago. Boom.

    reducing its probability to develop.

    From flhurricane.com : (it sounds like he is describing surfing guess waves are waves, no matter what kind of wave (energy) we are talking about:
    "
    Current JSL and Funktop enhancements show very limited if any signs of Thunderstorms in or around 93L.
    First visible satellite photo is half IR half VIS but is does show the system maintaining structure and low to mid level organization.

    Moving westward at 10-15 knots. I question whether 93L is running on the periphery of the Total Precipitable Water envelope that it originated from. Seems to be lagging the pouch of the wave. Well behind the crest of the wave and near the trailing wave trough.
    My perception at the current time.

    Weak waves have been known to transverse the Lower Lesser Antilles mountains. Wait and see is the forecast now.
