Hurricane Lorenzo briefly hit cat 4 yesterday – fortunately out in the middle of the Atlantic. The impact is nice long period groundswell flowing across the Atlantic. We have been getting 15 plus second swells for several days now. I was able to rearrange my schedule and got in a dawn patrol this morning. Nice chest high swells with plenty of zip for 100 yard plus rides. Never more than 6-7 of us out in the line-up. Plenty of rides to go around.
Got in almost three hours. towards the end, swells dropped down to about waist to chest high, but still a bit of fun to them.
Perfect way to end the day. Something to remember and appreciate.
Hoping for more this weekend but forecasted from a local system with shorter period and messier waves.
