    Weekend

    So much for the double to triple over head this weekend. And also for the west wind on sunday. Dont get me wrong the waves were awesome, friday night was perfect, and saturday was decent just really big and closing out. I wish the forecasters were right but they were incorrect. But definetly the best surf of the summer.

    I don't know man, Saturday was pretty much perfect where I was in Jersey. Sunday was a killer with the lack of West wind and the massive drop in swell period. But still fun from around 10am til 3pm. This morning was very fun. I'm exhausted!

    we realize it was an overcall... been working on an upgrade for a while that corrects forecasts based on nearshore buoys... unfortunately, we didn't get to roll it out for the Bill swell, because we hadn't tested it enough. But, we have put the upgrade into place starting today, and will apply for the 24 hour forecast period.

    Overcall? Maybe. But the thing that gets me is, who could complain? The forecast called for big waves and we had big waves. At some point, does it really matter if it is overhead, 1-3 feet overhead, double overhead or triple overhead?

    You either got on it or you didn't. And if you couldn't have fun Sunday morning, I don't know what you need.

    We will now get the inevitable post swell arguments about how big it was or wasn't and whether the forecasts were correct or incorrect, but there is only one question that needs to be answered.

    Did you have fun?

    I sure did.

    I saw far from perfect, anything above manasquan was just huge closeouts and didnt even understand why people were floating out there not catching anything and even if they did dropped in to closeout. But I still dont think manasquan was perfect, perfect to me is clean walls of surf and barrels, which might have happened early morning sat.

    I think the closest spot to perfection was definitely casino pier but im sure other spots south were good as well if they could handle it.
