    Lol... nope, its too far east and already pretty much in line with the atlantic region. If anything Brett has a better chance of bringing swell but if he does it'll be minimal, as it's losing strength and going away from the coast as well.

    I paddled out last night down in SB hoping that maybe withthe tide push last night might get a small bit of pulse from Brett, was just hoping if i was on it at the right time get something rideable but.......... nothing. I was just wanted to find someone named Brett to flip him off or some gesture to show my distaste in things named Brett. So hopefully wont be on here cursing the name "lee" in a few months. I did score this past Firday night and Saturday morning on some fun stomach high sets friday night and wasit high sets on Saturday morning this past weekend.

    You can pretty much mark your calendar though for August 15th thru September 1 that we are having a good tropical swell.............. I just found out that I have to go to Bremerton Washington for those two weeks, and it never fails soon as i leave in the late summer/fall for work we get a good swell so............... You're all welcome!

    No need to fret. This is typically one of the least consistent times of year surf wise in the mid Atlantic/NE. I generally write off May 20 through August 15th as time to work on my golf game. We will get ours, just be patient, and in the meantime, Stay Above the Weather!!

    This is a great start of the season, 3 tropical storms before August even hits us is a good sign of a very busy tropical season. And Don will probably develop before August as well. Check hurricane archives to see how past years played out during this time of year.
