South Atlantic Storm...
this happened earlier in the summer from the equatorial Atlantic activity, but its usually not anything major that makes it up our way.
Take a look at the Swellinfo North Atlantic wave maps, you'll notice a little blob tracking towards the windward islands... Lets hope we get some development here...
this may have been the woooorst summer everrrrrrrr. . .three weeks left for redemption but i'm really banking on september and october, those lp groundswells are fickle anyway need real medium period head high juice that has actual sets insted of the crap we've been getting
Yeah 17-18 sec. swells are no good in DE/MD most of the time, especially when they are a little bigger. Sometimes a small long period swell is really fun though. Normally, a big 10-11 sec. ESE or SSE swell is best.
The past few years, its been like GOD turned on a switch on September 1st...
august can go either way, but the past few august seasons haven't been too good.
latest GFS run, showing a full blow storm moving off of Africa. NEVER reliable this far out, but fun to look at.
On the Swellinfo maps, zoom out to North Atlantic.
Nice track on that too
for those complaining about the waves being terrible, did you ride august 8th and today? both were fun days
you gota make the best outa what we have
