Cool site Jim!!
Looks to be spot-on because it's flat in NJ today! http://www.njsurfer.com/
It seems peoples perception of wave height varies as much as image of beauty. Every one sees something different. I found this site that is pretty revealing and informative.

Quite simple actually...
It's either overhead or it's not...
and when it is not, you find someone with a waverunner to get you up to speed to ride the little ones...
Wish ya could have been in Ocean City. It was like old times all over again...
Big Seas and some seriously damaged boats !

Pretty Cool site Jim!!
Sites like this are going to suck all the fun out of this sport. How's a guy supposed to tell his buddies about "runnin' flat out in fives-n-sixes"?
Thats funny Jim,
Localized weather systems (pressure), wind, currents, temperatures and bottom contour create varied conditions on varied beach stretches . In fact as a racer you have no doubt experienced wildly different conditions from one part of a race course to another from the morning to the afternoon from from the start of the race to the end of a race. Throw on a odd roller or "set" as a surfer would call it and you could have a flat day with 4-6 ft swells.
Point is, weather conditions for a specific point (1 mile coastline) are hard enough to judge. A number on a map reresenting 700 miles of coastline is not realistic. But a good topic of conversation.

Every one thinks the big sea they are in is bigger than it really is.
Waves are formed over many miles taking many hours or days. Big swells don't just occur they are created over time and space.
