    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......____________________

    i agree that it's been a pretty dismal summer. nothing really over stomach high since early july & endless flatness there for a week or so. but you know that even if it had been head high most of the summer, half the people on here would be *****ing about how the wind was wrong or the tide was too full or too low or the swell angle wasn't right or swellinfo had forecasted DOH & all they got was head high w/ maybe bigger sets...face it, we're never happy.

    personally, i can't wait for the next solidly overhead swell to see how many people *actually* paddleout & back up all the ****-talking that's been going on & how many find some excuse to just hang in the parking lot or on the beach watching. that's always how it is on a decent to big swell...lot's of people talking in the lead up, not so many paddling out & catching waves when it comes to suit deed to word.
