Hope everyone has been enjoying a fun boost in surf the last couple of days! Our latest tropical waves didn’t produce the tracks we were looking for, but at least it’s signs of the awakening of the Atlantic. Hurricane Earl has now been named a Category 1, but has unfortunately taken a path through the Caribbean and is headed for Belize. I’m not quite sure it is worth the long trek to Texas to chase, and the little bit of swell they’ll get will mostly be blocked by the Yucatan. Earl’s little trailer storm that was hanging out there is starting to fizzle away, and no further development is expected over the next five days. We’ll keep a little eye on Earl, but there is little to no chance for him to turn back in the Gulf as it blazes a trail through Belize and into Mexico.

After the front off our coast, along with a little stir in the ocean from the tropics, our windswell/groundswell looks to fade into Friday and through the weekend ahead. We may see a little bump up in windswell at the beginning of next week, but a couple of days is all we’re going to get with this swell. We’ll keep our eyes peeled to West Africa in hopes of seeing the next disturbances that will be on the way, but after a little excitement this past week, it looks like things will get quiet again for a bit.
