    umm yeah. I don't know where you are. But we've had quite a few chest high barreling days up here this summer. You can't get shacked in mush and I was multiple times. It didn't get bad until recently

    You could have surfed every day in the last 2 months other than maybe 10 days here and there, this was in Maryland. That's not saying the waves were great but they were there if you wanted them. I did notice a complete lack of any power or size on even the best days.

    Complaining about a lack of waves in san diego. I wish I had that problem. Give me some waist high almost everyday for a month in August. I'll be happy.

    I know it's still early but I'm getting a bad vibe about this hurricane season. There is nothing happening right now or for the forecastable future. It looks likely that the first hurricane won't spin up until Sept.

    Interesting info,

The shape of the high out in the Atlantic currently and for most of the summer has been somewhat oblong, situated on a slightly SW -NE axis which has been a significant reason why waves have been in short supply. Fla has probably been the best place to be and New England the worst. I know that the shape of the high will change, but until it does any storm that forms will probably track south.

    Another thing is that in the not to distant future Greenland is going to become green again, and until that happens there is going to be a lot of cold water dripping into the N Atlantic. The ocean stayed fairly cold late into the spring this year and has stayed on the cool side most of the summer. I've had my 3/2 on more than my 1 ml so far. It's been a relatively cool Aug too. I don't know how that will affect tropical storms or even if it will, but the cooler the water the less fuel for storms.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    Same up here. I am pretty happy with the end of August.
