some FL guy here lost and in the wrong forum
Anyways, when Hannah was north swell and Ike was south swell I was out at a spot by cape canaveral FL sufring solid 8' Hawian ( accordign to the photo guy on the beach I talked to after). I'd been out there for about 10 waves and getting worked by alot more. Then after one wave on my paddel back outside I saw one breaking way way outside to the right, like nothing I'd ever seen in FL but more like something from a surfer mag! I'd say 10' maybee 12' Hawian and the most important thing is that it was to the right on me as I didn't want to take the duck dive as it probably snap by little 6'4" board
I saw a video of valentines day 08 at ruggles and that swell was solid. i was surfing in mtk that day and it was big but the vid of RI at least looked a little bigger? And that st. pats swell is up there too. Both swells were DOH + on the big sets. i also remember a few swells in march that were huge. i will say the biggest waves i have paddled out in and watched other people surf were tripple over head. It would be super rare to have a swell bigger than that and have good rideable conditions, but at a few spots i think it is possible but again rare.
