Whats going on guys I'm fairly new to reading reports and I thought I had a pretty solid idea of what to look for but apparently not. I'm from Long Island NY, looking at the Fire Island swell forecast and there was a reported offshore wind with a SSE swell for this morning and when I went out, nothing was out there. The tide was the only thing off it was in between high going to low when low is better but I don't think it would affect it that much where waves were barely breaking.
I read that there was a 4 foot swell with a 7 second period with 5mph offshore winds.. thought that would produce some solid waves but there was nothing. Anything I'm missing? What should I be looking for? HELP
