March came in like a lion and certainly went out like one. This past month went down as the wettest month on record on Long Island, dropping almost 10 inches of rain in some areas. A couple of nor’easters and a few other low pressure systems brought not only rain and wind to the area, but also some of the best days of waves we’ve seen in a while. It was truly madness. Earlier in the month we saw a huge storm that took down trees and left people without power for days but, damn, we’re the waves pumping. To continue the madness of March, we got slammed by another storm in the closing days of the month, leaving us with a lot of rain and a lot of waves.
We got some excellent photos from a few local photogs on Long Island including Greg Heine from Northeast Sessions, JC Beierle, and Evan Conway of Red Dawn Productions. If April is to be anything like March was, we can expect another month of excellent surf here in New York.
