    Sorry man... But your wrong... Your gonna wanna find a beach that faces anything but due west. An east swell hitting a west facing beach will usually be too walled up, and close out a lot. That is why South and North swells work so well on west facing beaches, because the angles equal to a nice peeling wave...

    Plus with the south east winds, I would look for a break that faces north.

    better north or south facing, so the swell hits at an angle

    yeah... for starters you will be hard up to find a west facing beach in the mid atlantic haha. Also, you dont necessarily have to find a north or south facing beach, just a jetty or pier to split those walls. good luck, hopefully i wont see you at my not so secret spot.

    Bottom line, probably won't know what it's gonna be like this weekend until getting to the water...I'm being optimistic...need a wave
