Personally I think this year was a let down when it came to hurricanes and storm swells. Hurricane Ana shattered then June 1 start date to the officaial hurricane season by well ovr 3 weeks. And then, with everybody's hopes up, we were let down by the lack of storm action we east coasters crave. But next year, supposedly, the number of storms will jack up into the teens and maybe even twentys. just somtin to lok forward to when your sitting freezing cold on a longboard in a lineup as u look for just one wave to push u along.
