It has been constant. I live three miles to the beach on the quite countryside and the roar of the ocean is quite audible.
Where and when to surf become quite complicated equations.  15í at 23 seconds is the new swell expected today.
Hopefully before dark.

The National Weather Serviceís Ocean Prediction Center reported that a satellite passing over the storm detected a significant wave height of 64 feet west of Ireland. This means individual waves in that area were potentially as high as 128 feet! Significant wave height is defined as the average of the highest one-third of waves in a particular period, and tends to run about half the height of single waves.

The problem is the wind. And the rain, leading to widespread flooding, since Dennis is just after storm Ciara.

Local to me, there have been gusts of wind up to 91mph, and itís been F7-10 onshore for days. Tough to surf in that, at most spots.

Here was the surf in storm Ciara, which seemingly turned into the beginning of storm Dennis with only one day of good surf between them:

Just like surfing (sort of), nice kick-out!

A 10 - the surfer looked to be in better circumstances than the rescue boat, but he probably didn't think so.

...and that Airbus, I wonder if the rudder alone was able to kick the tail around like that, in that wind. Impressive display of subtle control by the pilot for sure.
