May started out pretty miserable, lots of gloomy weather…although some scrap swells came through as we all waited for those Spring Noreasters that never came. This Spring was absurdly quiet, especially compared to last year. I can remember watching waves break during that April swell last season that I’ve never seen break before.
The tropics have been active though, today marks the official opening of Hurricane Season. We’ve already seen a few named storms, Tropical Storm Bertyl bounced around the South East before heading out to sea. On the bright side, it looks as though we may have a little action headed our way – in the form of a late season Noreaster. Without spreading too much hype….all those left hand points will be firing!
Well maybe not, the wind looks pretty unfavorable at this point so we’ll just have to wait it out. In light of the potential near future shooting opportunities, I filtered through all of my story boards from May and came up with a little clip (4 minutes little) with some of the local surfers. May started out pretty dismal, hoping June comes in roaring.
