Thread: Tomorrow swell?

  1. #1

    Tomorrow swell?

    Are these strong northeast winds going to destroy the ese swell that's heading for south facing rhode island breaks? 4.3 Feet ese swell is forecasted tomorrow, but won't these 40 knot northeast gusts all night long cause the swell to change direction and cancel out the ese since it's crossing it up? The buoy is already starting to show a ene swell at 10.8 feet. East can get in on south facing, but forget if there's a northerly component.

    Yes, but I thought only long period swell can refract like that? Buoy has been at like 6 seconds today.

    When conditions get good, I was always amazed by how many people would show up out there. Been there on so many bad/barely worth the effort days with noone out that I had no idea how many people keep tabs on it.
