*HURRICANE GONZALO*This is Rory Gregg with your Northeast Florida Surf Forecast*Updated 10/17/14*
Our amigo Gonzalo has become muy gordo this week and has developed into a Category 4 Hurricane that is currently pounding Bermuda as we speak! Albeit far away, he got enough strength to bring us some good waves over the next couple of days until a cold snap sweeps in behind him as he heads towards Nova Scotia. Get on it while you can and enjoy some fun waves this weekend! Further out we will have some wind slop early in the week, then we may get another little pulse from the north come next Thursday! Have a good weekend, tear it up, and GO JAGS!
