El Nino might have brought the season that got everybody all excited in their wetsuits or boardshorts but that goes for the Atlantic and Pacific ocean. Back here in the backwaters of the Mediterranean it’s the crappiest shitty season ever. With all the epic local spots going off just a distant memory burned by the constant Facebook “on this day” reminders from the past season you have no other option than to get excited over cold 1-2ft northern wind beachbreak blown out crap in northern Italy. Still, it was the 3rd of January, it was 3C above zero, water was like 10C and instead of onshore gusts there was a light offshore. Time to kick off the 2016 season.
