    Lack of waves in the South East??

    Does anyone have any real meteorological evidence of why this has been such a terrible winter for waves in the south east?? With this winter transitioning into a strong Nina i expected it to be a little slow but this is crazy!

    I think someone (maybe tony over at sweetwater but don't take my word for it) a couple of years ago posted something on the wblive message boards about weather patterns vs amount of surf. I know this doesn't help but maybe the guy who posted it will read this. I think it would be really cool to see the relation (or difference) in the two.

    It seems like Florida is getting a lot more surf than points north.

    I'm over it as well. That was a good surfline article about la nina and el nino.

    In times like these I paddle out just for the feeling and to see how close I can get to dolphins. Helps ease the blues a little

    The water cooled down much faster this year, than it did last year. Last year, we had a very mild December, like most years. The water slowly got cooled week by week through the winter. This year, the water was in the 70s one week, and then 3.5 weeks later the low 50s.

    Could the rapid rate of decline in water temp this year possibly have something to do with it?
