Not to keep this thing going, but the picture in qestion that got this thread up to 10 pages, ..I noticed that that inlet water level is as high as it could be with out spilling over the sides, so my qeuston is:
If water seeks is lowest point, always....how could the base of the wave in question, which is next to the jetty and jetty is next to the inlet,...how could the water level/base of the wave be so much lower then the water level of the lnlet? Would not the inlet water rush into the lowest point which would be right on the other side of the inlet jetty?
Even if that wave is far removed from being next to the jetty as others have said, it still coould not account for the water level being so much different then the water level surrounding it, could it.
Once again, if you follow this line of reasoning the idea of this wave being even 20 foot plus is called into question.
And as far as anything that has been posted since that even comes close to 30 plus feet, or 20 plus feet for that matter, would be the ASH storm story, which has some sort of relaible facts to back up the wave sizes. I still do not think many have a good idea of what a wave over 20 feet even looks like. I have been to only one place that came close to 20 feet and that was a first hand site of a second reef pipeline bomb in 03. now that wave was only in the 12 to 15 foot range, as the announcer said over the speakers, but it did break off of the second reef that is for sure. The picture from NJ only looks about half that size to be honest, but who knows maybe it is 25 feet.......
Lol I am in the picture at that end of the pier and I have HD footage of Jesse dropping in on that wave above. I have seen the Outer Banks bigger and better conditions than those pictures when I lived there.
STFU Pepper! ...I'm not even gonna waste my breath on you.
Haha....BTW - you got owned by tbing
First.. i dont know what Pepper means; maybe if I lived in Manasquan i would understand that.? secondly , you are clearly that guy (or girl) who always says its way bigger than it is. We all know people like you, and, like lifeguards and rent-a-cops, you make the world kookier, one report at a time.
I'm so happy that you can fend for yourself, so when you actually need help one time, don't worry about it, cause if they come to help you, you'll prolly call them a kook and that you're fine and tell them to get out of your way.
