    I thought it was a pretty good summer. Got a lot of good waves in Long Beach, New York.

    yea...i agree, this year is really bad. What ever happened to "the most active hurricane season ever"????

    Not the worst year ever but very poor, last year was the most consistent head high and clean everyday I can remember in 35 years which makes this summer feel even worse.

    plenty of ridable days considering not much tropical activity.. def. not worst year.. the problem this year is the sandbars are terrible bc of the lack of big swells to shape them..
    i def. surfed plenty this summer with some occ. good days.. i.e. colin swell which had some head+ sets rolling in

    tropical season generally doesn't get going to around this time of year. We of course can get storms earlier, but middle to late august is when the storms start to form off the Cape Verde Islands. Hang in there...

    Yeah September is on average the month with the biggest ground swells and most number of days with ride-able surf in the northeast. Oh and the water is still warm
