So right now, I believe the cold front is pushing anything that comes our way from the east out of the way. Is this right? If not, what exactly is causing those gosh-darned swells that form off our coast and bulldoze through potential waves ? And when will it subside so swell can freely come from the east and give us waves?
the stiff offshore winds dont help the situation, but the main reason its flat is there is no fetch in the north atlantic pointed our way.
if there was, say an east swell, the e swell would move in to the beaches despite the stiff offshore winds. Generally, speaking swells act independently of one another, however the short period wind swells will get blown out by the offshore flow.
I'm just as stoked as the next person about some surf, trust me., but any forecast outside of 72 hours is a guess. Patience is a must if you wanna surf the east coast. Good things come to those who wait
