swell direction

« on: February 28 2008 18:02:00 »

Hitting Nosara the end of March.  What is the optimal swell direction for here?  Gonna try my luck mapping out where we surf based on swell direction.
Here's what I'm trying, someone let me know what you think. Find the optimal swell direction for a spot and use that as a baseline. Get a good map that has compass headings on it. As the swell direction moves from the optimal direction, you move to spots that get it more head on.  
Has anyone ever tried this? Not thinking too hard on this, just getting stoked planning a trip. Help a brother out.
