Well its big. But theres not a darn thing we can do about it. That is unless you like paddling out on o-head conditions with enough froth you'll look like santa. Is the any chance for this friggin wind to drop the flags a little?
i see your from delmarva. the winds are looking to stay onshore, but will become much lighter Tuesday into Wednesday (10-15kt range)...
You think its big here... check out the buoys along the outer banks and down to florida. Florida is in store for one massive swell over the next couple of days. And south florida is looking pretty much epic with offshore winds tomorrow... I can't wait to see the photos that come out of this swell from down there.
Now doesn't florida usually suck? I am going down there this fall, and i was going to toss my boards on my bus and my relitives said dont bother. They said the waves always suck in florida. Now that one picture doesn't look sucky to me, that looks friggin incredable. Oh well, i guess i'll bring the boards anyway and find some good spots on the way down, and hopefully theres a big offshore hurricane of something.
That area can get good. I've surfed down there a handful of times. There are a lot of longboard type waves... But, when it gets some size, you can get some decent short board type waves.
For deerfield area, you want a good amount of N in the swell direction. If the swell direction is more NE, then you sometimes have to drive north to the palm beach area. Just give swellinfo.com a check before you head down.
I've been to Deerfield, and the best that can be said is that it's considerably more mushy than Cocoa is, and that's saying something. The other problem is actually finding a beach that's not a fortress of Coquina rock. It's been some time since I've been there, but Admin is right when he says drive north to Riviera Beach (just north of West Palm).
John Parton (Fox Surfboards) used to surf Miami, but not much as I recall, that's why he had time to build so many surfboards.
