You could have surfed every day in the last 2 months other than maybe 10 days here and there, this was in Maryland. That's not saying the waves were great but they were there if you wanted them. I did notice a complete lack of any power or size on even the best days.
Im in San Diego and havent surfed a good wave in over a month... Even driving north on the weekends havent gotten anything over waist high.
nothing on the horizon either.. mehhhh
I know it's still early but I'm getting a bad vibe about this hurricane season. There is nothing happening right now or for the forecastable future. It looks likely that the first hurricane won't spin up until Sept.
Another thing is that in the not to distant future Greenland is going to become green again, and until that happens there is going to be a lot of cold water dripping into the N Atlantic. The ocean stayed fairly cold late into the spring this year and has stayed on the cool side most of the summer. I've had my 3/2 on more than my 1 ml so far. It's been a relatively cool Aug too. I don't know how that will affect tropical storms or even if it will, but the cooler the water the less fuel for storms.
I hope I'm wrong.
i agree,this august sucked.hard to believe labor day is only a week away.iv been to the beach 100x but only surfed once,which sucks.sandy got our hope up,we had the best winter in probably 10years,best sand,now its flat,the sand is gone,and theres no free beaches.hopefully September brings atleast a tropical storm
my August wave count is pretty damn good. you just have to get lucky down south in OBX. also had some lingering swell in VB that has been fun. Its about time for some storms Though...
dude, I been getting fun waves at least twice a week almost all summer, ad I was just thinking this has ben a good august, compared to most.
