When summer comes to town, its mere presence is enough to make the ladies strip down into something “more comfortable.” It boosts coastal economies and stokes out school children overnight without lifting a finger.

It doesn’t always bring us waves, but when it does, ESM is there to document it every step of the way. From Tropical Storm Debby’s trek up the coast to the delightful ambush of several unnamed swells, this summer lit up everything from the Caribbean to the Canadian Maritimes. What follows are just a few of the world's most interesting tales from this season. Stay salty, my friends.
