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.
the same day, i came up from getting soundly bounced off the bottom and discovered my nifty $200 Rip Curl watch had been stripped off of my wrist. kept surfing, but later prowled the shorebreak when i came in, hoping i might get lucky and find it...which i did not, but did find a megalodon tooth about the size of a half dollar. i never wore a watch again, but still have the tooth sitting on my desk.
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.
