    frisco in hard offshores

    lets talk about 8 foot frisco in 20-25kt offshores. On paper, and the forecast, it looks great. Every time I make that call and go down there in those conditions its still victory at sea. Whats the call?

    OBX wind forecast

    Just checked the weather channel forecast and that wind forecast is better. So far friday should be great w/ wsw at 13 daytime going NNE at 3 friday nite. Frisco saturday day shows NNE 13 and thats way better than 20-25. 20-25 could be a near shore forecast. I'm going to surf Nags Head thur, fri all day and sat morning. Then if winds are ok for frisco drive down for sat during the day. I remember a storm back in mid 90's that stayed way offshore and it pushed in masssive swell that was clean with favorable winds. I think friday obx could be epic

    Victory at Sea and 12 has been washing over the last few swells more so than normal.

    Here is a plan; but as with previous storms, things can change and the swell/wind may not live up to the hype. So I remind myself to temper the anxiety! Follow and interpret the data, check the cams and make the decision that morning early! LOL!

    obx friday - offshore - just hope it is not in the 20-25 mph range.

    crystall coast saturday and sunday - offshore - may suck because AB and EI can not handle long period swell. (alot of closeouts).

    obx monday - offshore - light!

    Crystal Coast will be closing out if it gets to be overhead. There is no way around it. Best there in the 11-12 second range period. Go to Frisco.

    sooo.... how DOES frisco handle the hard offshores? What is the cutoff? 10-15kts? I know some points will work in super gusty offshores.

    if you wanna know what a hard offshore does at frisco..... go! If you get there and it's vas then you know where not to go next time, but if you get there and it's perfect glass then you and your boys will be talkin about it for weeks. the greater the risk the greater the reward
