    The sandbars switched around a lot in VB. It went from a shorebreak wave in the summer to slowly creep outwards. now it seems that the break is 100 yards plus out on a good swell. Is this winter suppose to be better than last winter. I remeber reading an artical talking about how bad the waves were in the 09 winter than in the past in the local newspaper.

    As far as the Hurricanes go - We didn't get many - but the few storms that we got up the eastern seaboard followed pretty much ideal paths for delmarva.

    I keep a surf journal too - '09 stood out for some quality tropical storms taking place in early August - other than that, it was a more-or-less average year for most of the year until late November into December, when it really turned on. A few more "sneaker" swell events over the summer than in other summers (b/c we had a lot of lows that sat offshore)

    i agree that hurricane season is overrated. The strong swells we get outside of hurricane season are generally better even on the very active tropical seasons.

    Having said that, I would say that September overall was less than average, but from January to December, there was hardly any dry months.

    this past winter sucked even though we got some swell i was on it but right when spring came i was crippled and then my late spring early summer i was trying to get myself back to my shortboard but then by late summer into fall and winter have been good with alot of swells on the weekends im not busy which is nice.

    Last winter was pretty horrible, only day that sticks out is Feb 19th. Spring was below average with horrible wind conditions. Summer was dreadful until late, we did get exceptional swell form the few storms we had. Fall started very slow, but the year has ended very good.

    I think last year overall was pretty below average, but the swell events we did get tended to be exceptional.

    Then again in 2008 we were spoiled.

    in my opinion there were a lot of close to epic swell this years especially in the fall to this early winter. we did get a couple flat spells but they would usually be followed up with a waist/clean windswell which would then be mixed with a larger swell(usually head+). im not trying to make it sound like it was the best year yet cuz it wasnt. but if you took your time to travel at all up and down the coast, you could almost always find some spot on the coast that was epic. (which is exactly what i did )
