Big Surf or Big Hype?
Best wave of the day, Sunday, August 23 Rockaway Beach
On Sundays visit to Beach 90th street, the waves were less than the crowds or the media. They were good overhead, 4-6 feet but none were the promised 12 feet. Depends if you measure it Hawaiian style, which would barely make it 2-4 feet (they measure it from the looking from off shore as a surfer sees it). What made it such a hype was the fact that it (Bill) came before labor day weekend and on a Sunday. Normally hurricane surf comes after labor day and on a weekday, so it hardly makes the news. Wait till September for bigger surf.
