Everyone here where I live now calls this time of year "flat". The majority of surfers on the island sit it out for the summer months and only ride when it picks up in the head high range again. They kinda look at me weird like "your paddling out for that?". Crazy. Being an east coaster I know better. Summer time in VB is flat and crowded. Summertime in Micronesia is 2-4ft hollow waves with 4 people on it ...almost every day.
