well got to love that kenny powers pic! i really hope they renew another season i love it.
but i really do care retro fishes are insane.
I had an expensive Pulsar watch once. I lost that watch in the ocean...then dove straight down and actually found it. 'Bout a year later, lost the same watch...dove down and found it again.
Granted, I wasn't in a big hurricane swell, but you obviously have to dive down, immediately, and feel around the sandbar before the watch gets pushed away or covered with sand. Anyway, after that watch finally cracked and got water in it, I quit wearing watches while surfing.
Not having been through a cane season yet as a surfer, is it really several weeks straight of substantial swell? The dates show that there were not many days where a hurricane system wasn't in effect. The map shows some of them stayed in the longitudinal Central Atlantic. Did these storms send good swell east? How close does a cane have to be to the eastern seaboard to make it crank?
This is a great thread to read with lots of great input. Keeps hope alive for what's ahead.
emass, the prime spot is like a cat 3+ storm like 100-200 miles west of bermuda that just parks itself there. well at least for the mid-atlantic anyway.
And no. depending on the storm and how fast it moves, cane swells can last a whole week or the swell windows can be a matter of hours. it all depends on the storms individual wind field and track. even pros and people from all over will flock to the east coast when a substantial swell might occur.
What retro is it and what size? Been liking mine although I've liked the groveler even more, just not a ton of waves for the groveler.
2001, back when I was living on Long Island between semesters...the memory is both good and bad. I don't remember what hurricane it was, but we had a monster 10+ ft swell, bigger than anything I'd ever surfed or seen in person. I got out of work at 5 PM, rushed to the beach and saw all these surfers just standing on shore. I thought, "what the hell is everyone staring at?!" I rushed into the water, only to struggle and get crushed over and over again trying to get out the back, all the while getting rushed down the shoreline by the monster current. I finally got out, caught a wave, popped up, fell on the drop and got ****ing rocked. Then I got the **** out. I was in way over my head. I put my tail between my legs and stayed on shore and with 90% of the other surfers who were there that day and just enjoyed watching the true talent that was out there riding. It was a humbling experience.
