November has been a good month, snow and surf wise. We’re currently experiencing one of the longest swells NH has seen since last Winter and there has been some significant snowfall in the higher elevations. We still have a 4-6″ snow pack atop Mt. Mansfield–It’s bulletproof ice but hopefully it’ll stick out this warm spell. Here is a few shots from the first half of November.

Woke up this morning absurdly early because my sleep schedule is mangled, I could hear the ocean from my house and that usually means it’s pretty well raging. Stevie O’Hara from Pioneers was absolutely shredding, the majority of these photos are of him.
Edited to add that Kelly Slater has also won his 10th world title today. No one else in sports history has won 10 world titles. Congratulations Kelly!

After a little bit of mis-forecasting on my part, and 36 hours we finally saw some swell. Yesterday was sideshore, semi consistent and head high today was super windy out of the north. Fortunately we saw a little bit more size today, sets this morning as the tide filled in were 2ft overhead plus. Tomorrow morning should still be good, here are a few shots from the last two days.
