When Everyone Sees Destruction I Know I’m Getting Barelled
Balaram Stack on the good and bad of east coast hurricanes.
“When they turn on the news all they see is bad things,” says Balaram. “When I see a hurricane I think we’re getting waves; I know I’m getting barreled.” As surfers, we view significant weather events different than most. In California, when we find out there’s a hurricane spinning south of Baja, tearing apart Cabo San Lucas and further making its way up the coast, a level of stoke and anticipation turns on. For the United States’ right coast, the feeling is much the same. But unlike the west, which just benefits from the swell; the east coast gets rocked: infrastructure collapses, trees uproot, cities flood, towns evacuate, and occasionally a state of emergency is declared – but away from the chaos on land, the situation at sea can be an entirely different story.
