Sean Collins of Surfline:

The speed of travel of the deep water swell group will be 1.5 times the 
swell period; ie: a 20 second swell will be traveling at 30 Nautical 
mph. The actual individual waves will be traveling at three times the 
swell period, so a 20 second swell will have waves moving at up to 60 
Nautical mph.

The individual waves will travel to the front of the set as the swell 
group moves forward; once there, it'll slow down and drift to the back 
of the pack before moving forward again. Think of it as a conveyor belt 
turning at 30mph but the whole conveyor belt chassis is actually on the 
back of a flatbed truck going down the highway at 30mph. So if you had 
an object attached to the conveyor belt -- while it's turning and being 
carried by the truck -- the actual speed of the object would be 60mph. 
(Sound like math yet?)
