    Ocean City off shore wind farm.... could it decay the incoming swell?

    I'm all for renewable energy, but it seems like it would drastically decay any incoming swell.

    Wanted to know if anyone had any info on the effects of the off shore wind farm?



    this picture if true would definitely destroy any swell.

    How the game is played.


    1. Create corporation with the mission to provide renewable energy.
    2. Create impressive website touting your lofty goals.
    3. Seek and receive federal and state grant money.
    4. Spend said grant money on high salaries for yourself and your buddies until said grant money is gone.
    5. Quietly close up shop.
    6. Look for the next scam.




    I wouldn't worry about said wind farm.

    The new guy dropping some impressive knowledge.

    FWIW, I don't believe that a wall of windmills will significantly degrade swell.

    As much as I hate the idea of it, I doubt it would impact the surf.

    A "windfarm" does not CREATE wind, dummy.
    It uses wind to create electricity.
    God....the dearth of basic science knowledge in our society is astounding....
