Re: Where did you surf today ?

OK, so if the M3 buoy has a peak wave period of 13.7 and the South P buoy has a peak Period of only 8.3 then it must be mostly windswell from the Celtic Sea?

Just help a brother out here.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Well since 9am today it’s been at 295-315 degrees with a 28-41 degree spread. Yesterday was more like 250 degrees with a 14-28 degree spread. Hope that helps ???? Everything from 230 westwards looks completely cock-blocked by Ireland to me. Any photos? I make the southern tip of Ireland about 360 k...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Really?

I see gale/storm force N to NW winds on the synoptic and ASCAT passes.

how does a North wind generate swell for a south facing swell window with Ireland blocking every thing seawards and westwards of that?

Or are you surfing the Irish Sea windswell?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

I'll never forget my first surf at Bournemouth Pier.

pissing rain, straight onshore gales and brown water waist high junk full of polluted stormwater.

50 people out.

just about every surf I had in the UK, I did under sufferance from having my manhood compared unfavourably to the more hardy Brit.
