An Extraordinary Winter of North Atlantic Storms

The below awesome animation put together by MagicSeaweed offers a sick visual display of just how much swell the North Atlantic has copped in the last two and half months. But don’t go storing away your rhinochaser quite yet, there’s plenty more juice on the way (see above). In fact, the whole bloody North Atlantic is lighting up again as one big red blob, but this time with most of the swell energy focused at Portugal and further south.

So while our swell records at Surf Europe go back all of about two weeks, we’re pretty damn sure this has been the angriest run of North Atlantic water ever coz we’ve giving up even checking it. I mean, seriously, why bloody bother? But if you don’t want to take our word for it, just hit play and watch them lows spin off into eternity.
