Your swell height and period was fairly dead on. It was the calculation of that swell height/period into actual wave height that was way off. How does your buoy data validation work? Is it still a computer model output? I really like your forecast. I feel it's the best out there overall.
pardon my rookie-dom at using your earl prediction model..i'm relatively new to the east coast surf weather scene-
how is the surf from earl going to be different than we saw in nj from danielle?
according to the forecast i am guessing that shorter period, higher harder winds the morning the swell hits, but in terms of surfable wave quality are we basically going to see less organized sets in choppy water, consisitent waves coming through with huge sets every 5'?
what should i be reading into your forecast. and what type of break set up would i be looking for for best wave quality with the hurricane predicted to be so close to shore?
