Goodbye Danny, and Hello Erika! Our boy Danny built up a little head of steam for a cup of coffee and then faded away, such is life for our 2015 Hurricane Season. Yet, he paved a trail of moisture and left his girlfriend chasing after him across the Atlantic! With such a slow season so far, it is easy to get over-amped once a storm like Danny pops onto the radar, but after closely monitoring for days, it’s a hard pill to swallow once again. Have faith in the process that is Hurricane Season, and as we deepen into the heart of the elements, we now appear to have a legitimate contender to send us some waves … Finally!

Currently Erika is sitting 150+ miles from the Antigua, and over the next two days she will plow her way through the Virgin Islands and into Puerto Rico. Once she reaches that pivotal point, she will most likely take a path towards the Bahamas and Florida, but as always, some models have her steering more to the north towards our not-so-fortunate states to the north. Needless to say, we should see some good waves come Monday before we see some victory at sea conditions on Tuesday, then some cleanup days thereafter … Fingers crossed! We’ll keep our eyes close to this one, and be back online by week’s end for an update!

Also, don’t forget about your chance to win $5,000. Take advantage of this upcoming swell and  take some really awesome pictures. Visit  www.saltlifefoodshack.com/big-wave-challenge for more details.
