    End of Big Wave Season
    It should be noted that the big wave period usually ends in March, however there may still be big waves in April but it is less likely.

    Note: The last season has not been very consistent in the generation of giant waves, due to the lack of big storms in the Atlantic Ocean, sometimes it happens, hopefully it will be better next winter.
