might be more of an issue with it being dead low tide this evening. There was still plenty of swell out there today in Delmarva - low tide makes a big difference here.
Dead low isn't until 8:30pm here......At 5pm it was mid going out...I'm sure it was playing a part.... But....the wind has been on it all day hard. Which is why I think the wind killed the swell. Opposed to the tide.

Glad you got some...[during the day] Your also from Delmarva......I'm in NJ Monmouth County......At 5pm in wasn't even close to chest.
This was from OCM this morning at about 10am, 2 hrs after low tide
This was from 5pm this afternoon, at about mid-tide towards low.
Pretty much jump and dump most of the day, but the wind was absolutely howling offshore in the late afternoon hours. It was all I could do to hold onto my board when I took it out of my car which was parked between two high rises. More to come in the days that follow.
