Looks like the West Bermuda buoy has been rocking a nice 8 foot 11 sec swell since morning. If my calculations are right , it should be buried under Thursday afternoons wind chop . Why do we always have bad wind on these days ? It will be my Birthday , so I'm wishing for improving winds .

No there is not. The forecast has been onshore winds in that time frame for days. The forecast has been surf with shitty winds/conditions and it has not budged for a week or more. Quit making shit up.

Which is after the peak of the swell when it is trending down and only for a short time frame.

From surfline
For thursday 5/12/22

4-6ft+
Chest to 1ft overhead
4-6ft
Chest to overhead
Surfline Good size NE swell lingers but winds likely to remain problematic. Could see some improvement pending the track of low pressure though so worth watching


When is the last time you saw something like this happen?

What are the odds of this actually coming true?

-------------------------
So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

NWS Melbourne:

Wednesday-Friday...The low pressure system off the VA/NC coast
becomes cutoff, heading southward Wed before retrograding SW on Thu
towards FL. NE winds will increase as the low approaches FL, leading
to hazardous beach and surf conditions. A daily 30-40% of showers
and thunderstorms returns to the forecast. Highs will be mid 80s
inland and low 80s along the coast.

While models continue to maintain good agreement on the development
and trajectory of this system, timing and location vary a bit with
the ECM bringing the center more towards Jacksonville, while the GFS
brings it the The Cape before turning northwestward, and the
Canadian kills it off before reaching The Bahamas. Impacts along the
east central FL coast will be highly dependent on the position of
the system as it reaches the SE coast. The further south the low
takes, the more coastal impacts such as beach erosion, rough surf,
and even coastal flooding, could be experienced.
