    i diagree I thought the hurricane season for 09 was pretty mediocre as well as the 09 winter. Stand out swells for Virginia beach that i remember was febuary 19. Some swell over spring break. Hurricane Bill and Danny. Noreaster Ida. and the swell last weekend that I missed due to going to my grandparents. Wish I didnt miss that one. But el nino years give consistant winter swells correct?

    who cares if the amount of hurricanes was less than average? weve consistently had swell for the east coast PLUS the wind/sandbars were pretty cooperative. flat spells were pretty short followed by great stretchs of clean surf

    dont forget that vb is sheltered from south swell and has a wide continental shelf so it misses or weakens certain direction swells compared to your southern and northern neighbors

    Hurricane season is overrated. Nor'Easter's are more frequent and bring comparable punch!

    2009 i kept a "surf log/journal" detailing surf conditions, guys i surfed with and locations i surfed for every session (sometimes more than one per day)

    Total Surf Sessions for 2009 (including PR and OBX) = 97

    Pretty cool. Also fun to reference when someone posts video or pic of sick surf with the date. I can cross reference those vids and pics with my journal taking me back to that particular day!

    Peace out 09!

    I think it was a good year with the sand bars being re-adjusted so far this winter, thou the hurricane season sucked, thanks el'nino.
