Seriously. This is a chest to shoulder high ground swell event. California gets this almost every day all summer long! Nevermind that most of ec(especially really heavy near "shorepound like" breaks in nj) have no proper features for a ground swell and end up closing out. Some of the more gently sloping sand breaks that are few and far between in the mid atlantic are what you need if you don't have reefs I think this hype illustrates just how wave starved the wrong coast is this year! First year I can EVER remember not having a solid ground swell from a hurricane before labor day. Oh and what's with people talking about the storm stalling for 2 weeks??? You really think you can forecast that now? And as far as nearshore winds go, 48hour forecast is as far as as you can reasonably tell what winds might be.
