    im hoping this season is like 1998 . Most of the cane that year skimmed by the coast not hitting land in the mid atlantic . There were close enough to throw the swell at us but not the crazy windy rain weather , while having high pressure on here on the east coast pushing off shore winds . School bus size barrels , with groomed over head wave .

    Powerful Bermuda highs punctuated with tropical activity, but we get onshore winds and wear wetsuits until July in VB.

    Here's to hoping last year was an anomaly. But I also must keep PJB's philosophy on all this hurricane talk going. What do y'all do the other 98% of the time during May-November when there is no hurricane swell? Do you walk up to the beach at dawn on a warm July morning, see it is only knee to thigh high (but glassy, peeling warm) and walk away skulking and muttering to yourself, "I can't wait for the next hurricane swell maaan." Or do you grab your log or fish and go out and get wet? Those small Summer days are when I see myself in years past towing my boys out to the sandbar (just hang to my leash boyo) for the first time, seeing the fear and excitement in their small faces. Seeing them catch their first waves. Seeing them come into contact with all the sea life for the first time. Seeing them humbled by it all. The laughter.
    Sure, there's nothing like the day after a cane, those clean chest to head high walls. Feeling that power. getting worked, REALLY worked. Pulling out before the thing closes out.

    Sorry had to cut that last post short. The BIG boss just walked into the trailer that is our office on the work site. This guy is a 300 pound behemoth with concrete slabs for hands. Scary dude. My point was don't get jaded with hurricane hype. Some of the funnest days are those small Summer days where everyone out there is just goofing and hooting. That's what this is all about right? FUN.

    Yeah Chavez, couldn't agree more, but I will say after surfing knee-thigh high days throughout the summer, it sure is nice to get that holy sh*t feeling we all crave by going down the face of a freight train like wave. That feeling is what I think what keeps us coming back for more and what scratches the itch so-to-speak.

    You're right DPS, I think I'm just waxing poetic about the Summer cause I'm getting sick of this godforsaken cold azz Winter we are having up here. The surf has been, for most part, consistent but I'd kill to paddle out in some boardies right now. Just sliding on my longboard in my silver-back gorilla stance with the sun burning my shoulders. Figures I cannot go back to the Rich Port (PR) this winter and we have one of the coldest ones in long time.

    I remember one season when I was younger, they were lined up like planes flying into an airport, one after another...and none came to shore...north of Puerto Rico and just went either just west or east of Bermuda and the winds always cooperated....an amazing September and October. Sure would be nice to get something similar late summer into fall this year.

    SUPper, until 10 days ago we had 6 weeks of stoke and gnarl here. DOH on some occasions. One Monday that was 55 out and sunny for a 3hr sesh. Cold? Yeah. But anything beats flatness we had in mid to late '13. PR? Was booked for it a few weeks ago but saved the tix for later since report was garbage. The spring is about to kick up and be a repeat of last spring. Why you guys think I was so stoked and still am? Last spring, clean waves and sun every day.
