We’re in Flatsonville right now, but as predicted, we weren’t far off from our first tropical wave coming to a coast near you! As our heat dome moves easterly, creating a vacuum flow of air across the Atlantic, West Africa is starting to fire off. Come next Tuesday/Wednesday, we could see our first signs of tropical swell in the water in awhile after fighting through the summer doldrums! We will be keeping a close eye on this one as always, and with El Nino out of sight now, it’s game on!

Invest 96L is a tropical disturbance with a maximum wind speed of 24 mph. It is currently moving to the west at 18 mph. It’s still way too early to tell what this system will do, but at least it’s something to potentially get excited about. It will be pretty flat most of the week, but there is a little longboard wave out there if you need to get wet. Until then, we’ll keep our eyes on the radars for you and report back once things start to escalate by this weekend in hopes of sending us some swell early next week!
