Swell wise the summer can be distinctly fickle as the Atlantic storm track shifts north, it can and does go flat for extended periods. Autumn sees the arrival of the Quiksilver Pro and the start of the swell season proper. You can still surf in a shorty all through September and into October as the swells roll in. August sees a swell consistency around the 43 percent mark, jumping to 59 and then 73 percent by October.© 2014 magicseaweed
