    I think I cursed the east coast by moving back from CA last fall. I was only here from October on, but aside from Sandy last year, both fall seasons were pretty much trash.

    Disclaimer. I did surf this morning and it was fun. Chest high and pretty clean. So, I can't completely complain, but that is all that its been for two years straight. Sometimes fun. Mediocre sized days. I guess I don't get too angry though, because with all the flatness and stuff, anything ridable becomes fun to me. So sad. If I have the time and money, I will make a mid-winter trip back to San Diego for a week or 10 days and get my stoke-tank refilled.

    zach619, you're far too humble. Please post more often. Because of you, I only wear a leash in winds greater than 22mph, critical wave height of 6'+ (eastern scale), or power in excess of 500 kJ. Seriously, brah, you are a righteous dude and one of the many I learn a ton from by reading your posts. Let's get you more active here. I pledge to withhold 5 posts for every 1 you put up. That goes for all yous udder heroes, too. You know who you are.

Here it is- 2014 is going to be EPIC. I'm talking like one for the record books type epic. There will be size, there will be consistency, and there will be favorable conditions. And there will be a swell of all swells that will be forever known as 'The Swell of 2014'. Remember where you heard it first.
    Sweet! Now all I need is for the forum to let me know where to surf, when exactly, what board, which fins to use, what kind of wetsuit, what thickness, how to clean my diseased wetsuit when I'm done, what to eat after, who's your favorite football team, and will there mermaids in the line up?
    These waves are gonna be so good, mermaid permitting, I can't wait. I'm gonna ride 671 waves in 2014, 203 of those waves will be tubes.

    Completely agree//...following the worst summer ever. 2013 has been a complete and total bust. Maybe it'll thin the herd....?

    This summer was far from the worst, i surfed at least twice a week almost the entire summer, but i agree it wasn't spectacular by any stretch of the imagination....worst fall...definitely, two little storms that resulted in sub-par waves, winter has to be good this year....or maybe it won't and we will just suffer more.

    I did get on it on Monday, but I'd have to say the swell we got two or three weeks ago was a lot better...i think it was the first week of November...that swell was good size, about head high and had some good power behind it....that Friday evening sesh was probably the best since the friday we got a nice sized swell the beginning of September....

    Koki, Allah bless you for you rationality and ability to know reality.

    I have no clue why people rag this past summer. The only thing I can think of is that they have only been surfing for a few years and got accustomed to having hurricane swells arrive like clock work in mid-August. And hurricanes don't define the summer season anyways.

    June was actually pretty darn good. July, the wettest July in my region ever, had 1-2 clean little waist+ swells per week. And I forget aboot August, but I reckon it was much like July.

    July isn't supposed to be good. South Africa is good in July but Virginia Beach, Dewey Beach, Deal, Lido, 'Gansett, and Hampton isn't. The summer is supposed to be lackluster around here you nitwits. That's why you appreciate one of them South wind, foggy, upwelling summers. Jeez, June and July in 2011 were completely flat as far as I could tell. I was trapped in a building in Mays Landing, NJ those two months but I kept tabs. I KEPT TABS.

    I don't even remember the summer of 2012 so it couldn't have been any better than this past summer. All I remember is that the canes started right after Labor Day which was just great. Yeah September of 2012 was good. Leslie and some other storm, plus two good cold front swells(one being the crop of the month) made for a consistent month. But the weekend crowds were atrocious. SCRAM !! GO AWAY !! Go golfing or rock climbing or ride your bike............

    And YOU, you Son B!tch.......the one who only shows up in September on easy 3 foot clean days and acts like he's King Royality because he grew up in town. You only surf when the weather's warm, the water's warm and it's clean and easy. I have way more respect for someone who's on it all year from King of Prussia, PA. YOU Son of B!tch.

    And YOU, the one who teaches their kids how to surf and paddles them out at the most crowded spot on the island and right into the pack. YOU Son of a B!tch. Then they get mad at ME because their kid obliviously starts paddling for a wave I'm already on. All I did was just go around him. I didn't DO NOTHING !! Don't give me a look. Don't stare at me if you ain't going to do anything when I stare back. You son of a B!tch.

    And YOU, the one who paddles out and then sits RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. WHAT ARE YOU FRIGGIN THAT CLUELESS.......

    AND YOU, YOU SUP GUYS.........Pick a peak/area and STAY PUT. STOP PADDLING NORTH AND THEN SOUTH AND THEN NORTH AND THEN SOUTH...........YOU MAKE ME DIZZY AND GIVE ME THE JITTERS.

    AND YOU, novice kayakers..........YOU CAN'T CONTROL YOUR CRAFT.......DON'T PADDLE OUT INTO A CROWD. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE WHERE YOU WON'T RUN PEOPLE OVER.

    AND YOU, the hotshot teen.........IT'S TWO FOOT !! STOP PADDLE BATTLING PEOPLE FOR A TWO FOOT WAVE !!! TAKE A FRIGGIN VALIUM OR SOMETHING. OR STOP SMOKING PCP BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT IN A HEAT AGAINST GARY ELKERTON TRYING TO GET PRIORITY. IT'S A FRIGGIN TWO FOOT DAY IN FRIGGIN NEW JERSEY.

    some people take these flatspells too personal,like god told the sea to stop working.its weather dude,we cant control it.lately iv been losin my stoke for surfing,hoping a good trip will set me straight since jersey has nothing on offer.i work near the beach so I drive past everyday n while theres little rideable 2footers,im not interested til its atleast chest to head high plus.

    and can anyone enlighten me about this alleged big storm we are supposed to get near thanksgiving.iv surfed thanksgiving plenty of times with epic waves but I see nothing on the systems.i wouldn't consider 3ft epic.would be nice,i think its because we had such an epic winter last yr thanks to sandy,i think since we had no hurricanes this yr,we mght be in for a brutal winter

    Mr. Cep,

    There is something personal aboot the latest conditions. Something ain't right. Hey I hear Archy and MIS-13 believe that the U.S. government is controlling the weather and creating devestating storms in other parts of the world. Therefore, it has screwed-up normal east coast weather conditions resulting in bunk surf and crazy people who depend on waves to keep them somewhat sane and off the corners. I don't know, but that's what I hear.

    And.......aboot this big Thanksgiving storm. I believe the surf predicting gods had forecasted a bigger swell a few days ago. I'm not sure, but I think so. I don't really pay attention that far out. Even when I do look at the forecast, I only pay attention to the approaching 48-72 hours. But I do believe I saw a legitimate bulge in the graph for next Thursday.

    Surprisingly, that forecast has been updated. And true to the way things are going, it has been downsized. But who knows, things may change again.

    Ahhh, remember the days when Thanksgiving and Christmas offered up some goods, more often than not. I do.

    Douglas, you just wait for my Damien Hardman and Bryce Ellis references...............I might get crazy and throw a Charlie Kuhn reference out there someday, too.
