SEASONAL NOTES

THE GOOD, BAD and the UGLY

Late Spring/Early Summer 2022

After months of strong, back to back storms moving out of the Pacific, across the US and into the Atlantic (and producing equally strong swell events) all of the storms that I am currently seeing in the Pacific and on the US Mainland are relatively weak and disorganized in comparison. This will result in equally weak swell events this weekend and into next week and unless this pattern changes, we could be in for a summer of dribbly, weak swell events. So be prepared to lower your expectations and plan to do a lot of longboarding and/or groveling.

 

THE X-FACTORS

The Bad News

NY BEACH CLOSURES

Many of the popular Rockaway Beach surf spots will be closed this Spring, Summer and into early Fall. Check out this LINK for details. 

THE KOOK EGGS ARE HATCHING

The other factor to consider is that as the water warms up the lineups are gonna fill up with entry level surfers. Some of these new surfers are wary and respectful while others are clueless, entitled dangerous kooks, but you really can't tell them apart until they paddle out. My suggestion is to avoid the popular summer breaks or sit wide and watch the pandemonium from a safe distance. 

The Good News

HURRICANE SEASON 2022

Hurricane Season starts on 1 June and the predictions are solid.

IMPORTANT STUFF TO KNOW ABOUT THE TROPICS

*A tropical wave is a cluster of thunderstorms that crosses the African Continent, originating to the East in the Indian Ocean, and moves into the Atlantic Basin near the equator. Once this happens we watch it for potential development into a larger, more powerful storm like a tropical storm or hurricane.

**The Atlantic Basin is the cradle of tropical storms and hurricanes and is located at the Equator between West Africa, crosses the Cabo Verde Islands and stretches across to the northern tip of South America
