Hope everyone had a radical 4th of July and enjoyed a little R&R with family and friends! Nobody does the 4th like the 904! As for the surf, we’ve been stuck in the summer doldrums right now. Scorching heat, and a constant flow of SW moisture brewing from the Gulf and various systems in the Midwest sucking up the hot air in our direction. With this constant flow of hot offshore winds, any microwaves in sight are getting beat down before they even get to shore. We have had a couple little bursts of sets on these mega tides from the last moon phase that is now fading. At the right place and right time, you’ll be able to find enough to push an LB or a SUP if you need to get wet, but don’t expect to cool off too much in the surf, as water temps are well into the 80s and air temps will have heat indexes in the 100+ range all week. Stay in the shade when you can, and drink lots of water!

All is quiet in the tropics at present in the Atlantic, but there are a few storms firing off in the Pacific. As we are seeing some raging hot air and water temps, we will slowly creep towards the Cape Verde season. A shift in activity will turn from the Gulf to the Atlantic swell windows. Predictions have recently changed and upped the count by one more storm now, and the waiting game begins. Now is a really great time to pick up a new copy of Void Magazine and check out the monthly Hurricane Central segment that will go on throughout Hurricane Season 2016 to keep you up to date on preparedness, activity and what to expect next. Hang in there, stay cool and safe from this heat, and fingers crossed we’ll have some real waves to report come weekend forecast!
