    in all my years of watching hurricanes and tropical storms pass the grand strand i don't remember there ever being any leftover swell once a hurricane passes. it flattens out pretty quick with the westerly winds and the storm itself pulls most of the swell with it. i see our best potential for clean surf coming with the swell from ike not from hanna. i'll be down there early to check it but i am not overly optamistic.

    There was a little wave after Floyd in 99.

    Might be heading to Holden tomorrow or sunday. I just called the guys at Surf City around 30th street. They said it was around waist right now in Myrtle.

    Yeah, my guess is shin high tomorrow morning. West wind at 25-30 knots will take everything out of it in no time.

    Went out today at 2ish. Real clean with good lines around 3 then as the day progressed it got windy-er and choppy-er. It was real good, waist to shoulders for quite a while. Heading back out tomorrow around the same time if the wind is off it.

I have a free place to stay in the area, but I would be driving from Charlotte. If it is going to be a mosh pit, I will save the gas and jump in my washer for the same effect.
    Since you are driving all the way here I will help you out. Pawley's Island will be your best bet for Saturday. PI faces east instead of south east like MB. The winds out of the west will be offshore keeping PI cleaner tomorrow. There is also a surf comp at Garden City Pier Sat. at 8 a.m. Could be good.
