A Category 4 flare up, major flooding, over 52″ of rain (that’s over 4 feet), and on his way to a third landfall, Hurricane Harvey will be one for the record books in the Texas Gulf Coast. Luckily for us no major impact yet.. But more things could come in the near future if it maintains a head of steam and veers out into the Atlantic in a few days. After our wake up call with Mathew last year, we don’t take this situation lightly, and many teams of great folks from the First Coast are caravaning with donations to Big Tex! Like the old saying goes, Don’t Mess With Texas! The locals there have stepped up big time as well as others to help resurrect the situation the best they can, but the storm is heading now through the middle grounds of Louisiana and Texas, and albeit 12 years removed from Katrina, yes… it has been that long.. The Louisiana residents aren’t taking it lightly. This storm flared up between two big high pressure systems and held steady, and now is ready to move. We pray for all for all of the folks there and the good  people of the First Coast heading there to donate time and supplies to help! On the home front, we had a nice freak swell bump yesterday from Tropical Depression #10, hoped to be named but never built up enough to do so, but we’ll take it, and at select breaks it was firing for a bit!!! We have another new one brewing, a new 92L out in the Cabo Verde region, and they’re giving it a good 90% chance of development over the next week! It’s that time of year! The swell charts appear to be pretty flat here over this week, but there will be some long range fetch in the water. We still have no idea what Harvey is going to do at this point, but what we do know is that #10 is fading away, and the new 92L is brewing with solid promise! We’ll have an update going into the holiday weekend, and you’l have some small but ridable waves throughout the week!
