Welcome to hurricane season … officially! We all know we got a mulligan this year due to Ana coming along early, but “officially” as of June 1, we are now in our favorite season of the year as surfers! In the Tropics, all is quiet for the most part. We have a long trough hanging all the way down the East Coast with the tail end of the system stretching through the Caribbean in Central America. Very low probability of anything flaring up at this point, but if anything will happen in June, historically it will happen in the Gulf. There are a couple little blips on the radar starting to float off of Africa right now, but still way too early in the season to see any rapid development. Currently, the surf has mellowed out after our good run of swell over the weekend, and we will be holding in an Easterly flow of small windswell/groundswell mix throughout the rest of the week. It will be ridable, just on the smaller side, and with a full moon phase kicking in you will want to catch the peak tides on the incoming turns to catch the best mother nature will give you at the right break. Even though the waves are small, never underestimate the rips that will be produced during these strong tides. Congrats to all of the grads, and if you are thinking of getting the perfect graduation gift for a summer full of fun, why not head to your local surf shop and grab a great summer shred stick like a SUP, LB, or a retro-fish?
