After fifteen years of surfing in Sicily a few times I’ve seen a combination of favorable factors all together, in order to create a perfect swell like this. The direction from North West give the right angle to the swell to hit all the spots on the north and west coast, the wind was practically absent, the period between waves pass the rare limit of 10-seconds and the buoy swing from 3.9 to 5,6 meters, that would normally only see with the wind blowing at more than 40 knots. But this time everything went different, at seven in the morning the waves were already well formed and not a leaf was moving. For once the swell was perfect.
