    Definite lines, but still pretty small. That cam will be interesting in another 24 hours.

    seeing as the buoy is 3ft @ 9 seconds... not likely.

    there is some medium period stuff in the water from when Ana was around.

    The start of the long period stuff will start showing overnight into tomorrow morning.

    Still only running about 3ft in at the north end of OBX (Corolla). Waves have actually dropped down a bit from earlier this morning, but we are at LT right now. Pretty steady SSE wind all morning.

    Just checked the surf locally and its beginning its slow build already. The winds are kicking up and the water is pulsing. Should be even more active by this time tomorrow. :)

    No $hi+! I surfed Manasquan Inlet after Bertha hit in '96; one of the biggest/cleanest hurricane swells I've ever seen.

    Closeouts

    With this long period swell 99% of all surf spots will be closing out. Not just little closeouts, big massive wall closeouts that are not rideable. I hope everyone that is serious about going out has done their homework...

    I was curious and just swam under this beast to check things out. I think you guys will be happy. I should be in the mid-atlantic region by tonight so I'll look forward to seeing you all.

    I have to agree man, if this hold..not sure many will be able to paddle out or worth it unless you are pro and maybe even have tow action going on. Jersey sandbars might very well be closing out during certains times of the swell and the others complete perfection.

    Here is one forecast for 8am in jersey:

    11-15ft
    20period

    I dont know man, I cant wait to just pull up to the beach and see these beasts in our own backyard.

    But then again, have to remember these are measurements little further out in sea and the waves will drop in size and wont hold that height. who cares, its gonn a be big.

    its looking like sunday will be the only rideable day. maybe not from sunrise but by midday will definitely be good, i see period dropping to 16secs already. this could shape out real well
