THE X-FACTORS

THE LATE WINTER BLUES

Gotta admit that I am apprehensive about this time of year. Mid-Late Winter to 

Early Spring has always been a dice roll, and this year has definitely has been no different. This winter has been tricky: Mega-swells, never-ending nor'easters, back

to back storms that screw with our local winds, cold snaps, snow, wonky sandbars, lengthy flat spells and short-duration swell events. 

Compared to the winter of 2023 (consistent surf, cooperative winds, seasonally 

warmer air and water temps), this winter has thrown a monkey wrench into the 

works and severely limited the water time for the average intermediate surfer. 

 

Regardless of this, I will still argue that winter is the best time for your surfing.

Compared to the usual shitshow of summer and early fall, there are way more days

of solid, fun surf with 85% fewer people in the water. Skipping the winter is akin to

excluding protein from your diet. Without it, your surfing and your fitness will suffer. 

HOW TO COPE WITH WEIRD WAVES: It helps to monitor your local conditions closely and be prepared to hit it when things line up. It also helps to lower your standards, because only paddling out when it's firing will negatively impact your surfing and your surf fitness. Another thing that helps, get a midlength, a groveler

or a fish. You'd be amazed at how much fun you can have in weak, wobbly surf

on a surfboard with less rocker and more volume.

 

Don't forget to support your local surf shop and your local shaper!

  

THE GOOD NEWS

Right now, the North Pacific is still roaring with strong storms and many of these 

storms will make their way east via the jet stream. Stay tuned.
