    just look at the surface winds map on this site. Its pretty obvious where the ENE swell is being generated.

    Were all gonna get hooked up with a nice lil mid week clean swell.

    Weird how the marine forecast is calling for 2-3 ft seas, 1ft near shore tomorrow. Contradicts what everyone else is calling for. I guess if it's 2-3 ft 12 or 13 secs it could be shoulder high.

    I'll be on it!

    I trust the model that your forecasts are based off of much more than the NWS forecast. But, they are usually in agreement.

    Ya, it looks like the updated NWS forecast is now in agreement.
