    Winter has its doldrums just like summer. Around here it is strong NW winds. I keep expectations (therefore disapointments) low during both. Come on springtime

    the way 2012 wrapped up, with so much swell and so much energy, i felt like a flat spell such as this was almost guaranteed. cause and effect type of deal

    It's different. Things are in constant flux.
    That being said, I don't remember Jan being a great month at all. Winter is all or nothing often and more so not.
    No surprise there. Let's try not to be surprised when it's pretty flat in July either. EC living, baby. It's called 'travel'.

    I don't care what anybody says January is always the worst month of the year followed by July. Of course there have been years that buck that trend but all in all its sh*t.

    Yeah, everyone here calling Surf5 a kook has no idea what they are talking about. January is hands down the worst month every year. Canadian highs dip into the middle to eastern half of the US and set up and it blows from the NW at 30mph bar the occasional wobble in the jet stream. Even July has bermuda high swells. Yeah it sucks, but it will get better, February / March leave good chances for those big North Atlantic lows to stall and drift SW.

    Skeglegs I swear I have been dreaming of El Salvador for the last month. I have watched every video on Vimeo and youtube about the east. There is a video out there that shows all the ladies from the kitchen, the young guy that was there during the day keeping the grounds and our boat driver. What was his name, Eduardo? Anyhow I miss that place especially now.
