    Talking Thurs. WAVES?!?!

    Can this be true? Will this forecast hold true? Head high and fairly clean!!! It is sooooo about time!

    head high? not a chance!

    We've seen this before time and time again. SW swells that slowly rotate west are half the size predicted. unless you drive north to south facers which will be a little bigger and junky. Hopefully we get to surf something but I wouldn't put any hype behind it.

    prepared to be skunked. learn the weather and how it works, then you wouldnt have to ask if its gonna hold true. and to answer that, no its not. its gooing to be (at WB) FLAT. look at the floor bra, thats how flat its gonna be. EI-AB might have a bump, a peaky line or two, chop slop, cold. ahhhh hahahaha

    We'll just have to wait & see. Swellinfo is wrong often on both spectrums often. Its waist high right now in WB but here it says "minimal"! Ill just keep my fingers crossed...no one wants to go to AB or EI for junk!

    I think that www.wblivesurf.com still offers achieved surf reports on that site...check it out. This winter has been a suck fest! Hope summers better.

    False, last spring starting in Early feb. cranked in some fun days right behind these strong ssw's. It went on a pattern up til mid April.. there were several good days. This is identical to last years models and I know for where I went that is more east facing, it certiainly had head sets each swell coming through during that time. There are few places that can hold these waves for a while around the area, then start to crap out with the westerlies. Timing is the key with these short lived swells. Def. nothing to write home about, but sure is a good break from work and works up the stoke a little.
