Well, after our arctic blasts and polar vortexes we’re back to more traditional fare; a good ‘ol Nor’easter! We have a love-hate relationship with these blustery, but from time to time the wind and the swell find a sweet spot, and it makes suiting up worth the paddle. After all of the energy from the last passing fronts in the great white north continue their paths across the North Atlantic, lots of energy will remain in the ocean. Now with another named winter storm (Maya) coming in, we have two huge high pressure systems sandwiching a long draping low pressure system stretching all the way from the Gulf to Greenland with some tight isobars wrapped in between.

Winds go for blustery to not-insignificant through the weekend, with a mix windswell/groundswell in the chest to head-high-plus range on sets. Into next week, once the front progresses we should see some warming temps and a little suckup swell holding through Tuesday with a rebound swell closer to the weekend. It has been a good winter, and the tokens in the wave machine don’t seem to running out any time soon.
