We’ve had a good run of swell the last couple of weeks. A new impending front looks a little eerie on the radar, but unfortunately, it may not be the biggest swell producer as the elephants will go marching right past us. It happens frequently this time of year, and sometimes it signals a desperate call to head past the Cape for bluer pastures and bigger, warmer surf! As this big low-pressure system tracks east and sucks up what moisture there is in the Gulf in an unnaturally dry season for us so far, we are going to get some pretty nasty storms coming in through Monday.

We will have a little background swell building Saturday to Monday with some favorable temps, but the wind is going to be a little tricky, and it could be a game of “dodge the lighting bolt” at times. If you decide to make the run down south, the 120-hour forecast is looking pretty promising if you hit the right break at the right time, and it could be pretty big! Until then, we’ll keep our eyes on the flags and see how this front develops over the next few days, because things can and will always change!
