    Rough Surf

    I notice on the Bucuti Cam the surf is quite rough this morning. Appears if right up to the Palapas with a large cut bank.

    Anyone currently on the island that can comment?

    stopped at eagle beach to hang out and take a few dunks but it was IMPOSSIBLE to get into the water due to the waves.

    same waves and difficulties at palm beach near MOOMBAS.
    Walked the beach at Marriott and there is MUCH work to be done to repair mother nature's fury these past couple of months.

    abc and cdm beach has much damage and has some new rock seawall to help out the erosion. we counted 5 palapas out of commission at abc.

    Surf

    Hi


    Yep!! The surf is running high. Yesterday a lot of wave action. Surf rolling in at height of 6--9 feet at Eagle Beach. Lots of local surfers out. Today it is still high surf but not as rough as yesterday. Friend who is a Captain of one of the catamarans had a rough day yesterday...a few sickies and the swell so strong the cruise took an extra hour to return due to the water conditions.

    At Eagle Beach the surf is carrying in a lot of sand. This may help regenerate some beach lost to Tomas

    Hope this helps

    Having previously been on the island when the surf has been similar can confirm it is an awesome expierence. Usually brings out lots of boggy boarders and surfers in the Manchebo-ABC-CDM areas.

    Thanks
