I am optimistic.

That's an odd path, but maybe just what we need to break this spell

We often see a token swell in May with tropical characteristics, however this apparently isn't the case for this system. The retrograde part reeks of tropical storm behavior though. So maybe we get a little pay back for the dismal March/April surf we've had to endure. If this comes to fruition for next Thursday ...say 6@12 with ~ west winds it will be nice to surf some legit walls. I think there was a decent swell in both May 20' and 21'.
I recall a huge May swell solid double overhead with offshores ...must of been like 10 years ago at least. Maybe this leads to an outlying LA NINA summer with some ground swell a la 1995.

Friday 5/13

4-5ft
Chest to head
3-4ft+
Waist to shoulder
Surfline :Low pressure suggested to shift inland to the north. NE/NNE swell eases and local winds may improve. This is a day to watch for a potential proper cleanup.

So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

What would Carl Rossby say?

ST cyclone

If this doesn't make shortboardable waves, I'm taking up a new sport because we are never getting swell again. The low is over open water, it's spinning and it's moving south...there has to be fun waves, right?

-------------------------
So long and thanks for all the fish.

from florida today:
Hurricane season doesn't official begin until June 1. It ends on Nov. 30. Because of this trend, there has been increasing discussions among weather experts about moving the official start of hurricane season up to May 15.

The current May streak of named storms started in 2015 with Annie. The following year it happened twice with Alex and Bonnie.

Since then? Arlene (2017), Alberto (2018), Andrea (2019), Arthur and Bertha (2020) and Ana (2021).

Will wait for the clean or semi-clean up. After surfing only once in the last month, I'm in no condition to lock horns with overhead windchop

It was May 3 2013. I remember because it was the best day of my life. I remember Surfline's forecast for the day was 3-7 foot, poor to fair conditions with strong onshore winds all day. Woke up the next day to see winds 10-15 mph off shore and 10ft+ waves. Surfed for 8 hours and had the longest walk back I ever had. May 4 and May 5 were pretty amazing too but May 3 will probably never have a day line up like that again.
