Late summer and early fall are very good for surf because of frequent hurricanes and tropical storms. October and November are generally poor. December through March it picks up with the NW swells. Spring gets flat again until hurricane season starts. Most swells average 3-5' with the exception of the NW'ers and hurricanes, which can get bigger, and there is generally ridable surf three days of each week during the better months. Two-week flat spells are possible during the down times.
