Don't think I've ever caught LI with a pumping swell of that size in warm water. Surely the entire island wasn't closing out. Were sets arriving in a timely fashion, or this skunky 'random wave' crap?
No, I'm sure not. Beach replenishment didn't really help here. And it was significantly bigger everywhere east of far west. Here it went from basically flat at 5 to one or two wave chest to maybe head high "sets" every 5 minutes or so by 7. And even then, the big name spot wasn't working at all, knee to waist high shorebreak.
and slashdog, the Monmouther who didnt score had a weak screen name, might have had to do with his attitude about scoring and what constitutes scoring
SSE. And 44066 is pretty far south of here, when there was that reading the Fire Island nearshore buoy was in the 15 second or so range. Seemed like most of it wasn't making it in here, I would imagine northern Monmouth wasn't getting it either, for similar reasons.
