The waves have been good on the East Coast. Like insanely good.
Swell from Hurricane Maria stuck around for a few days. And Jose before that. All the big superlatives are being thrown around, "best Fall ever", "most consistent," "my arms are gonna fall off."
Photographers have dropped sick photos / edits: Ryan Mack, Mike Casella, Mike Nelson, Evan Conway, Etan Blatt, Daniel Wise...to name a few.
If you don't know those guys--pick up your phone, open Instagram and follow them now. I'll wait.
As far as my day was concerned, I was happy to get a few photos in focus without too much water on the lens. And I caught a few waves. Nothing crazy. Just trying to take my average skills to the next level.
What does that even mean? A more powerful hack? Better flow? More tweaked out turns? I'd take any of the above. Good thing there's more swell on tap.
To those I surfed with - thanks for sharing the vibe. To those I have yet to meet, see you out there.
