“Ahhhhctober” A Swell Story – Anthony Leone
Save for the last few stragglers, as well as those who know better than to stay here in the summer, the tourist are gone and once the beach is cleared of inebriated frat boys and the ruins of long forgotten pop up tents even the Atlantic wants to stretch out.
With the pacific ocean catching the brunt of the tropical storm systems this summer and a below average tropical season in the Atlantic, you couldn’t say we’ve been wave starved but we haven’t exactly been offered the gluttonous feast of wide open spitting barrels that we’d come to expect in seasons past. The right low pressure system worked its way out to sea and with a lucky break from the past weeks of unrelenting north east winds, the banks came alive once again to remind us all why we choose this pile of sand to live and surf. – Anthony Leone
