    Not only is it possible, it's common anytime we get strong offshore winds for several days in a row. It doesn't do us any good for waves as you might have guessed.

    Oh come on... they have a pretty epic photo gallery. I'm not saying that Swellinfo's sucks, but the amount of traffic that MSW processes, it allows them to hit a wider selection of extremely talented photographers... Mainly cause it covers the entire globe, where Swellinfo doesn't.

    Since this is about swell direction, would a north swell deflect into long lines off the sandbar like south swells do?
