Well, it has been one of those summer-type weeks, but at least we’ve had the Olympics and the return of Jags football to keep us distracted … oh, and then there’s this, Tropical Storm Fiona forms, but at present, she only looks to be a one-and-done kinda date — fading away into the Atlantic. We are now officially into the Cape Verde season, and the hopes are high for a slow start and a big finish. Although it’s uncertain if she will take a different path, Fiona will most likely spiral off into the Atlantic and out of any swell range for us in Northeast Florida.

We’ve been waiting and waiting patiently for things to escalate. All signs are looking in our favor as of late, but dry air aloft has been starting a negative trend over our region, keeping potential storms at bay. We will keep the faith as we now are into the peak of the season in hopes that we’ll finally get some legit swell on the way soon! Activity is good, and more activity means it will only get better. Until then, keep the longboards and SUPs waxed up and you might find a small wave to grovel on to keep wet during the flat spells. Also, keep all of the folks in the Louisiana region in your thoughts and prayers as they are dealing with some tragic floods going on displacing thousands from their homes.
