Tourists go home. Flannels come out. Fullsuits go on. Sports rivalries heat up. And a variety of storm systems, from distant hurricanes to fast-moving cold fronts to hybrid low-pressure thingamajigs, track across all corners of the Eastern Seaboard, providing handfuls of fun swell, moments of slack wind, and some of the finest sunrise/sunset/fall color combinations we see throughout the year. Best of all, Hurricane Rafael and his no-name kin turned October into one big wave party, without bringing an ounce of the hype heaped on Hurricanes Leslie and Nadine in September.
