Riddle Me This, Surfline

How does a surf height of "2-3 ft.+" equate to "Fair+"? Am I splitting hairs? I think not. I'm sorry, but a two foot wave does not rise to the level of "fair" . . . ever!

It's usually swell or wave height and conditions or shape, so you get 2 -3 and fair or 6 - 8 and poor, or whatever.

It does if it's Noosa Australia...you can ride a twofer for almost a 1/4 mile if it's peeling properly. Of course at that point it'd be 2-3 and Good conditions. You should see what them Aussie longboarders do with a tiny wave. It's damn impressive.

Surfline has been a little, shall we say...OFF lately. Not sure what's going on over there. Anyhow, I'm pretty sure they are considering all factors including wind conditions, swell direction, etc...

I've learned to "adjust" their forecasts to what I know about the particular break. Anytime they say its 2-3 in Newport and fair, its more that likely GOOD and a foot better.

Keep in mind they are surfers too so it may be likely that there is a little "twist" in it. Just a little. ;)
