It looks like we can officially take a breath of fresh fall air, and breathe easy as Maria charts her path north before tailing off into the Atlantic. Currently sitting outside of harms way of Cape Canaveral with sustained winds of 115 mph Maria has torn a similar path through the islands as IRMA, she just decided to steer north a bit earlier. A reprieve for us, but our compatriots in the USVI and PR, they’ve taken the whip for the last 20 days, and many of our folks down there are flooded out in destruction still without power for some time to come. It could be months before they recover, and as we pick up the pieces here after IRMA, don’t forget to donate to those helping our island nations in the Caribbean if you can! As for the surf, well, we’re still holding in a solid run of swell and it doesn’t look like it’s letting up until later into next week! A big high pressure system after IRMA crept in keeping Jose, and Maria at bay, and left Lee lingering out to sea. We have some big swell this weekend with some solid mixed windswell/groundswell in the overhead ranges and growing! Winds look to shape up for some cleaner days ahead, so wax ’em up and get on it while it lasts! Off of Africa there’s another little blip on the radar showing but nothing major yet, but it ain’t over til the fat lady sings November 1st so we’re not in the clear yet, and more swells will be coming!
