    Well east along the same coast... San Juan neighborhood. Ain't shorebreak... long paddle out (or boat ride for the lucky ones).

    That is a fair question, one that I asked earlier in this thread (or the related one). One could ask the rhetorical question, "What is the difference, why split hairs?" After all, all these waves, at least the large ones, are generated from the same weather systems, but can vary widely depending upon where you are in the Western Atlantic. Then there are innate differences of coastal topography from the Canadian Maritimes through the Florida Keys. And the directions these coasts face.

    I'd be interested in seeing some good, consolidated data for general geographical areas that show the periodicity of wave size with offshore winds. Or, maybe not MagicSeaWeed does something like that for individual spots. I have not idea about the quality of the data.

    biggest wave

    consistently the biggest waves break and are rideable north of New York City. pointbreaks and reefs in deep water, no jet skis needed, at fifty different spots north of nowhere....go back to surfer mag a few years ago and check out parsons and gerlach towing in off southern new england...

    That was a very nice shot from Noel, Nov, 2008.

    Another shot from that swell, by Shawn, looks like double o/h to me


    Another Noel swell, this one of 46th Street, OC/Md, a close-up of Drex Harrington in the sweet spot, by MDSurfer, posted on these forums.


    Another one of my favorites of Noel, by livin4summer1 - you can't fully appreciate the size of this one with nobody on it.

The picture from NJ only looks about half that size to be honest, but who knows maybe it is 25 feet.......
    Congrats, you witnessed a 24-30 ft wave face reel off the second reef. You are familiar with the Hawaiian vs the rest of the worlds wave height measurement standard?
