First Real Swell of the Season Rocks the House

The first genuine WNW of the season roared into the area Wednesday pleasing everyone from pros at the Flatwater Classic (but not flat today!) to kooks at Cowells. The produce of the storm put up great numbers and went into consistent double digits for six hours yesterday afternoon. It looked like this:

3PM 12.5' 13.8 secs WNW

4PM 13.8 13.8 WNW

5PM 14.4 12.9 WNW

6PM 14.1 12.9 WNW

7PM 15.1 12.9 WNW

It went on for four more hours in the dark before settling down into single digit wave heights.

Mash got the longest rides of his life at Sarges. Chris picked off some double-oh sets at the Point. Meanwhile, I was teaching my EMT class in the afternoon when the real boomers came through...oh well, sometime the timing just isn't right...but it will be another day. Friday morning I know there will be something out there.
