I've really only used charts and bottom contour for fishing, but I think it would be fun to understand the undersea topography a bit more as it relates to surfing. We have any phds in the house? For example, I know the Hudson shelf valley serves as a deep-water wave funnel for W. LI, but I'm pretty ignorant about any similar effects in the northeast/mid-atlantic. I was in DE last weekend and was talking to a local about OC having a similar effect, but didn't know if NOAA even has the resources to research these sorts of things. Very much a kook when it comes to this floor mapping, etc. but would love to learn a little more. What a loser I am..
