February 2017 Swell Gallery

March 6, 2017 • Swell Gallery

Spring isn’t officially here yet, but barring a surprising turn of meteorological events, it sure feels like winter is over. All those 60º February days, a lack of significant snowfall, tropical-hued water in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast… It’s enough to make the most dedicated coldwater warrior book a trip to the Arctic Circle. Which is not to say that February was a lackluster month in the surf department. The beginning of the month saw a few blizzardy days in New England. Florida enjoyed several different pulses of fun surf. The Caribbean went bonkers for what seemed like a week straight. And enough random one-day swell events kept our inboxes stuffed with sick photos. Below are a few dozen of our favorites collected for our February 2017 Swell Gallery, from the tropical depths to the icy tundra. Thanks be to the shortest month of the year — now let’s see what March and the next big seasonal shift has in store for us.
