Hello and goodbye Claudette… She hung in there at Tropical Storm status for about 24 hours while forming quickly off of the Mid Atlantic coast, but never had enough directional steam to throw any swell our way, and she seemed to have sucked whatever energy was in the Atlantic along with her as she fades off into the Canadian Maritimes. Another system is moving in hard from the North at present causing a lot of havoc in the Souther Plains, but still too early to tell if it will morph into a Claudette any time soon. Long hot summer days ahead this week and not much swell in sight. The Tropics in the Atlantic Basin are being hindered by shearing winds coming across the Caribbean from the Pacific as they are having one of the most productive years to date with multiple systems off of Mexico and a big one heading for Japan. For now, we can keep our eyes peeled to the radars in hopes of seeing a blip off Africa soon, but with all of the activity coming off the mid atlantic this season anything north of Cape Hatteras to Maine has been seeing some fun consistent surf! Maybe a road trip or a plane ticket could be in your future!
