Wow. How good was Hermine!? After what felt like (and possibly was), the longest flat spell the Northeast endured, Tropical Storm Hermine ripped through Florida and up the coast producing one of the best forecasts New York has ever seen.
From Sunday through the week, almost every spectator came together in one place. Instagram. By using the hashtag #nyseahermine, people entered their photographs into an online community for the world to see. Although this Instagram contest was only launched one day prior to the swell, nearly 1,000 entries were shared. Sit back, take a minute (or thirty), and click through some of the amazing entries from the swell we will be talking about for years to come.
The competitions winner will be chosen next week, receiving the grand prize of a Wave Riding Vehicles surfboard, NYSEA hat, and Hurley board shorts.
