Par for the course this season, we get are hopes up and then are let down once again… Erika didn’t survive the timid climates across the Caribbean, and the ongoing effects of El Nino. It wasn’t all for not though, we did finally get a little pulse of fun surf, and for those of you that ventured down to Central Florida you may have scored some brief larger surf! Here comes Fred! As crazy as this season has been not, there are many crazy things happening because of the ever changing weather patterns. Hurricane, now Tropical Storm Fred formed off the coast of Africa and was the first named storm since 1892 to hit the Cape Verde Islands! He has since been downgraded and is unfortunately taking a northward track very fast and at present doesn’t pose any threat to our region. We will have some small lingering leftover waves the next 24 hours, but will drop back to the small wave boarding range the rest of the week. Looking closer to home for any hope of increased surf, we will see some Nor’east conditions starting to kick in by Sunday, and might see a little windswell spike into Monday! We’ll keep our eyes on the radars, and at least we are seeing a daisy-chain of activity starting to happen now that we are in the peak of the season!

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.
