NO FOOLIN' AROUND

  • subtitle: This Is Not A Joke — Endless Run Of Swell Turns 2012-2013 Late Winter And Early Spring Into Most Wave-Blessed Season Ever

Written by  Nick McGregor
Monday, 4/01/13

We’ve run out of things to say about the last two months of endless waves here on the East Coast. From frigid snowstorms up north to fun windswells down south to bombing long-period haymakers in the Caribbean to nearly every type of aquatic bump, warble, peak, and line in between, if you haven’t stayed perpetually wet the last six weeks, you only have yourself to blame.

And guess what? This week is shaping up even nicer, with another quick shot hitting New England today and tomorrow and a weird suck-up south swell transitioning out of the Gulf and up the Atlantic coast for the weekend. Blame it on global warming, chalk it up to instant karma for the beating we took from Hurricane Sandy, or attribute it to any number of convoluted reasons — the bottom line is that no surfer worth his or her salt is looking forward to summer after the sumptuous shellacking we’ve enjoyed this winter and spring.
