Some outdoor folks like Hurricanes. Seems these big low pressure systems and the storm surge bring some "bitchin" waves for surfers. I suspect the east coast surfers are either hitting the beaches or watching the weather forecast.
But Earl may be too much for this bunch since along the east coast a four foot wave is killer. Remember, we are not talking about the waves in Hawaii. Keep an eye out on YouTube since I am sure the daring few will post their rides over the next couple of days.
