Thread: Summer 2011..

  1. #11
    end of July into August there were a few good days, nothing spectacular, but fun, nonetheless. The tropics have become unfavorable for storm development, but it may change and give us something in October. I was really looking forward to a kicka$$ hurricane season. I'm hoping Irene and Katia are not the only good swells we see this year.

    I wouldn't say worst summer ever, not even close. We still got some good swells later in the summer. But definitely not as good as last year. And I'm talking calendar summer, mid-June to to mid-September so I'm counting Irene and Katia. It was definitely one of the flattest July that I can remember though.

    I surfed a lot this summer. You had to be on it at the right tide and sandbar to get anything and have the flexability to do it. Anyone who doesn't live or work right on the beach would have missed 90% of the ridable waves since they only lasted about an hour or two before the wind picked up and ruined the fragile little lines. Trying to plan for all but a handfull of days this summer was impossible. As for size, there were only 3 days I can remember that touched chest high and all those other days were knee to thigh high at best.

    3 days of chest high all summer, and a ton of tiny "fragile" little knee high lines that lasted an hour or two at low tide, was to me pretty much as bad a summer as I can remember.

    That was my recollection. I remember two really fun "chest" high days at Assateague with 200 of my closest friends at 6am. Thank God for the ORV pass. The rest of the summer I spent fishing. Sandbars in OCMD were non-existant. Shorebreak everywhere. Love the fall.

    Agree..

    Worst summer I can remember.

    At least it wasn't as hot as last summer though.

    Summer '11 = Weak Sauce


    The Katia swell was pretty much the only waves worth mentioning since May on the OBX.
