Uploaded because it was unusual. Reported 4-5 (6) feet here and the image supports this, yet only 1-2' at other breaks in Cornwall, and the nww3 supports that. Yet the swell in SW Ireland in nww3 was WNW 1.4m 12s, so it seems nww3 has muted that swell because of the offshore wind BUT locally packets are getting through. Interference with SW swell could also contribute to big sets.
