Size and period is looking like a downward trend on the 20 mile buoy now.

Peaked This morning. The wave models really nailed this swell.

Well, that was fun! Thank You Earl! Um, waves every day since last Tuesday? When was the last time for that?

Joaquin was better, but not by much. Joaquin was smaller but had much more punch. All things considered Earl is one for the record books.

Wow. I would have given Joaquin a much higher grade - 13 straight days of clean, glassy, well-overhead waves. Earl had 8 days of good waves, but only one that was really overhead (and I thought the smaller days were actually better as far as makeable long lines). Maybe the difference in our evals is the same as in real estate - location, location, location. Don't get me wrong, I had an absolutely great time with Earl and am hugely grateful (especially since it has been so long), but Joaquin was bombing perfection.

Totally agree with smaller days being the better ones, AND IT"S NOT JUST BECAUSE I"M OLD!!! Smaller days had shorter period. Our bars just don't seem to hold a longer period swell unless there's a good cross bump/swell peaking it up. My 2 cents. Oh, and this AM makes nine.

Garcia is measuring duration. I was comparing peak swell quality day. If you ask for my opinion, the first three or four days of this swell were pretty lackluster. I do remember repeated classic sessions from Joaquin. And Tom there is a spot that holds the long period North. You know where it is.

Got a few, but it wasn't anything close to yesterday. Up and down the beach the shoulders were hard to find today.
