does anyone really think the swell is gonna die that fast?
It definitely will not be like it is now...I'm saying chest sets high in the morning.
that's what i was thinking, i wasnt expecting like head high waves with those offshore winds we're having, but i dont think offshore winds at 15 knots would bring a long period overhead swell to waist high. somebody correct me if im wrong
i thought the same thing how does it drop soo much?? but idk i kinda hope it does drop like that because i like it about stomache tochest high but im also smaller and younger but i hope so
Ya I was wondering the same thing. All I know is I will be up at 5:30 to check it...
I don't agree with the forecast just based on experience. Yeah this hurricane is way too powerful and passing way tooo close for there to be no swell tomorrow on the backside. I've seen noreaster's not nearly this powerful punch out into the Canadian maritimes real fast and the next day was enormous. If anything, the swells are probably just going to be more organzied. I'm going to check the forecast tomorrow morning. That will tell the story.
I think it could drop fast. Strong offshore winds and the storm tracking up the coast, rather than out to sea, is not the best combo to keep a swell around for very long. My guess is knee to chest, maybe a couple of leftover head high very early for DE and MD.
Well I was wrong and swellinfo was right. Swell dropping like a rock and it's only 10:00am.
of course you were wrong. i just hope you didn't waste too much duct tape getting ready for today.
southern monmouth county 5:30am head high occ plus peak... size faded while wind picked up...
I got out at 6 AM. Still some head high barrels, actually it was all barrels the whole time I was there. Lots of fun, sucks if you missed it.
Btw I wasn't in Monmouth, but still, it was firing.
Ahhhhhh i cant get out till later, hope it still has size and is goood.
ocnj was sooo fun... 3-4ft clean and dredging! soo hollow
Actually I spoke to soon. I was right. It's still firing overhead at 3:00pm.
yeah, overhead to you
cause you were on your belly. hahahahahahaha.......................................
I'm not in the mid atlantic. My buoy is over 8 feet at 11 seconds......That's not overhead or close to it? Another brilliant post empty. Certainly bigger than the 3 feet at 11 seconds that was forecasted for this time. Wasn't just swellinfo that got it wrong, other sources too.
Texas Tower #4 off the coast of SNJ is still reading 9.2 ft @ 9 seconds. **** was firing this afternoon by me. Photogs on the beach, mad heads in the water. Peelers.
It sucked totally today, glad you all stayed home getting stoned and playing on your xbox.. do it again tomorrow.
