Are you kidding, this storm path looks ideal for a sweet swell, great surfing, and just nice weather. However a bit of caution is required for non surfers in the water, boating should be no issue, except for clearing your local inlet.
You'd know better then I, but the local news just reported 8-10 foot breakers on Sunday/Monday and 4-5 chop today through the weekend.
I kind of expect conditions like we had for Sandy - which took a similar path. Was pretty crappy out for a few days.

lol way true, already got my gun waxed clean and ready to hit reef road, that place rocks on a big swell. :grin
Once it hits the 6 to 8 ft. plus range it's fairly self regulating anyways. I imagine there will be a lot of people doing the walk of shame this weekend. :grin My only concern at this point is how close to Florida is it going to be and how short is the swell interval going to be. If it gets too close that paddle is going to be brutal (but worth it.)
Hope it doesn't hit hard there. My daughter and her husband just opened a new restaurant on Virginia Beach. It's bad enough the one they have in Portsmouth floods when there's bad storms.
