    Possibly 4 times overhead. 20+ feet, thats insane!

    If it over 10 feet there will be serious problems. There will be few if any breaks that will be able to handle that swell. There will be lots of carnage and broken boards for people who aren't used to surfing waves of this size.

    Micah, just curious, is this the biggest forecast you have put up for the east coast since the site started? I certainly haven't seen any calls for triple overhead before.

    I am so stoked and yet peeing on me self in terror... I have never even seen double overhead much less surfed it...

    Im concearned that the waves in ocean city will be shore breaking like the normally do - i get so ticked with this crazy shore breaking close out. I have never been in OCM during a swell like this so i have no clue what to expect...

    otherwise im so stoked, i have been prepping my board and gear all week

    PRAY FOR VIABLE SURF!!!

    And for everyone questioning the cahones of east coasters... there is a difference between lack of skill and wanting to be safe, because its going to be squirrly up here. lets see if you guys can paddle out in a thick beach break like we will.

    Rach XD

    nothing personal -- stay on the beach....
    you're a danger not only to yourself but to others around you in big surf...

    It's not the size that counts, it's how clean it is. I think most of us would paddle out in anything as long as it's clean. I've been in 8 - 10 feet peeling glass but to get that on the E.C. the planets have to basically come in alignment.

    Then you have the standard hurricane double overhead+ conditions where when one guy tries to paddle out, he moves about a half mile down the beach in 10 seconds and eventually gives up. The guys who do make it out to the lineup (if you can call it that) just sit there on their boards and S4!+ bricks trying to find something that isn't a 12 foot closeout. So it really all depends. We won't know anything until the day of. It's fun to speculate I guess. The double OH - Triple OH day will probably be a choppy mess. The lifeguards will be busy that day rescuing dumb tourists.

    I agree with all of that.

    When I say I won't go out in anything overhead, I assume it will be the usual EC storm slop with strong currents. If it were clean and peeling, obviously it changes things a bit. I've been surfing long enough to know when I can and can't paddle out. Call it lack of skill, but I call it abundance of experience.

  9. When it's double-triple OH, crowds WILL NOT be a factor...

    TRUE. It will only be crowded on the beach as you walk past them to paddle out.
