    Record Summer?

    2011 looks like it may go down as the year when there was ZERO hurricane swell brought to the east coast between memorial and labor day. In all my years surfing I can't recall such a shameful summer of flatness.

    When was the last time this happened?

    Lead Time

    Yes, two weeks, but it takes at least 1.5 weeks generally for a Cape Verde low to make its way across the Atlantic, develop into a hurricane, and make some swell. Maybe we'll get lucky with 97L but my bets are on this summer being one for the record books - record for flatness......____________________

    In 43 years on The Outer Banks, 2011 so far is the worst year for swell I can remember. We need low pressure to come back off the mid Atlantic. Swell making storms in the Bermuda area have been on the decline for the last 11 years.
