Thread: Record Summer?

  1. All i know is Summer is the Kooks time for surfing, which you sound like. If you expect there to be epic swell from memorial day to labor day you are very misinformed. Get with the program, make all your money in the summer from the kooks because we all know the surf blows in the summer, and get ready for fall when we do get pumping surf.

    no look at danielle and earl. danielle formed as a depression on the 21st of august and earl formed on the 25th of august, and both of them got here by labor day. As long as the low pressure trough returns to block the east coast, we should see some hurricane swell in the waning days of summer.

  4. Tropics are lit up right now, only a matter of time before one of these storms takes a favorable track and sends us some long period ground swell.

    Its funny how excited I get nowadays when I can ride a fish, guess its a sign of how inconsistent its been this year.

    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.
    Yeah it really comical when you see them on the beach just hangin out . Or they say they were out earlier but you know thats a crock of shxx

    Actually I do expect at least one epic swell between memorial day and labor day, because there has been at least one hurricane sweeping up the coast every summer since I starting surfing over 15 years ago. Don't come on these forums after only being a member for one month and start calling people kooks. Surprise for you, most of the people on this site are "kooks" who only surf a few months of the year, so get over it.

    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.

    There have been good summers when the tropical weather falls into our favor.
