The End of Tourist Season

Labor Day has passed meaning so has summer. I realized today summer is for the tourists. You can be sad that it’s getting darker earlier, but that’s about the only thing that should bring you down.

Summer is crowds. It’s paying for parking, and dealing with long flat spells.

Hurricane Hermine recently blew through and produced some of the best days of surfing I have ever seen – the internet is full of pictures to prove it. And then Hurricane Karl produced three days of solid swell to follow that up. I surfed Friday night at Gilgo Beach, got in again on Saturday afternoon at Robert Mosses, and closed out the weekend with a morning surf at Gilgo and an evening session at Democrat Point.

Give me fall and you can keep summer.  If I wanted summer all the time I would move to Southern California, like my brother. I hope everyone was able to enjoy the weekend.
