It doesn't happen often. Epic waves on the East Coast during the summer. But the 2017 hurricane season really stepped things up last week! Hurricane Gert blessed wave-starved Atlantic surfers with solid surf, lighting up spots along the coastline as it tracked north. Everywhere starting pumping, New Jersey, Long Beach, Outer Banks, the list goes on and on, so we’ve pulled together clips from far and wide! If only it could be like this every August…
