    15 ft and offshore... damn. If i didnt have to work i would go give my best shot at death by drowning.

    Learn from daniel, 1-3 foot overhead really means occasional head. Therefore 15ft really means... well i still think its going to be nuts, even if it makes solid 8 foot showing. 8ft hatty is no joke.

    Watch out for storm debris. I broke a off 2 fins hitting a piling during isabel... and i was nowhere near a pier.

    Are you guys for real? There will be so much water moving around on Friday you won't come close to making it to the lineup. The outer sandbars will be the only thing holding and they are about a mile out (with 30-35k winds to boot). Unless you have a jetski, you won't be surfing anything over 8 ft.

    There are places in the outer banks that I have seen solid 10 foot (easily) swells breaking on the inner most bars. I'm not saying it will be ridable, I'm just saying you are pessimistic and really don't know what you are talking about, at all.

    It was jacking up 8 feet this morning when the shore break sections ran over backwash waves in KDH. I dropped in on what I thought was about a head high sick peeling right, only to end up on a 8 foot (looked bigger) face staring at a dry sandbar beneath me. I locked in and tried my best to burn that section, which I did. And holy **** what an adrenaline rush.

    How long have you been coming here? This place is very conservative with surf heights. The fact that you cant figure out that Danielle was a special situation when every swell model over called it than you obviously shouldnt be worrying about swell forecasts. I think it's obvious that Danielle's sharp NNE that came out of nowhere was the reason for the lack of swell. That being said where I am in central jersey there has been head high sets since Saturday at 10am and I saw bigger sets on Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

    Dang... my hometown is getting waves for weeks with what looks like one of the more fun hurricane seasons in a while... and I am stuck in the worst typhoon season in recent memory...all quiet in the western Pacific...not a ripple for two weeks. If that forecast is right on for Buxton, it'd be challenging to say the least... tracking so close,,,, monster off shores...definitely not for the "average Joe" surfer... if do-able at all. But I'd like to be there when that wind lets up a little... even if I was riding in town. Shoot... even a VB pointbreak sounds awesome right now. Looks like those in the know could score. Enjoy it ....I'm not.:mad:

    Where you at, just out of curiousity? I'm in the Nav, missed my fair share of hurricane seasons and definitely feel for ya. Maybe you'll score something unexpected. Anyway, here's hoping...

    As for NC, even if it's 15 ft, well, have fun drowning in 15 ft beachbreak hahaha. I've surfed with a lot of ridiculously talented folks, and this conversation always comes up, and the verdict is always the same: you need the PERFECT setup (ie. Puerto Escondido, Moss Landing, Hossegor, what have you) to hold waves that big at beachbreaks. Or maybe I'm wrong and we'll see a surfline vid of Jesse Hines and Noah Snyder ripping the crap out of it. I'm hoping for the latter! :)

    @ live aloha...Wife is navy...stationed in Guam...Hmmmm...Seen some big swells down south where didn't think it was do-able but video after the fact proved otherwise (granted it is the pros that score with jet ski assistance). Don't know...seems that storm is tracking super close now. I'm hoping to see some pics or videos of east coast boys pulling into some mackers around the internet in the next few days. I know a few spots in the Bay that should be throwing over too....ugh I need to surf. Hope you score some.

    30 ft @ 15 seconds is insane

    Well excuse the F**k out of me.

    I wouldn't call swellinfo conservative. Surfline is conservative. I was recently in hermosa when swellinfo said DOH and it was barely head high. Surfline called 4-6 foot on that day. None the less, they are both helpful tools, and swellinfo is FREEEEEE!

    also... i think daniel and earl are a pretty apple to apple comparison... long period ground swells from the tropical atlantic.

    And lastly... iv glad you scored this week, thats what its all about.

    This was just posted on surfline. For all the guys who can't believe 8 foot clean shore break happens down south:

    Look how close that is to shore and how clean it is.

    The E swell from Danielle had my local spot in DE going off; the conditions felt like I was on the West Coast or Costa Rica .

    Not neccesarily true...if it's head high to overhead and offshore at certain places the east coast, then its pretty comparable to many places in CR (Hermosa, Playa Grande, Dominical). The thing CR has that the east coast obviously doesn't are big reef/point breaks like play negra or salsa brava and consistency (i.e., consistent swells and offshores blowing for months at a time). Much less fickle in CR, to be sure, but if it's on here I'd say it compares favorably. Hawaii, now that's a different story.
