Climate Change vs. Surfing

Powerful storm North Sea kicks up surging waters
Waves up to 20 feet (6 meters) high rolled up against sea defenses in Lowestoft, England, the most easterly point in Britain, about 120 miles (190 kilometers) northeast of London on the North Sea coast early Friday.
Surf Report, East Coast, Cayton Bay:
It looks like the big northerly storm has come a bit early and has just avoided the absolute peak of the spring tides. Although it will still stay windy the winds should moderate and the swell clean up a bit but stay large all weekend. A change of direction to north westerly may allow offshore conditions at some spots for a while but they will also tend to push the waves over the other side of the North Sea - SoulSurfer
