Hello and goodbye Gert! Gert looked like he was setting up in our window over the weekend, but as he peaked into a category 1 strength, the swell never seemed to materialize … that’s the crazy thing about Mother Nature. With all of the technology we have to track these storms, the predictability and nature of ocean currents and swells is still … well, unpredictable. There’s various reasons we can use as excuses for why this or that doesn’t happen, but in a nutshell, Gert just didn’t seem to have enough girth to send any big swell, but at least it hasn’t been flat!

Let’s wind it up a bit because the Atlantic is officially alive! We have some elephants beginning to march across Africa into the ocean at present, and we could be seeing the first named storm during an eclipse, how cool is that! Invests 91 and 92L are brewing and both treks look to be promising! It has been scorching hot and the water temps are primed for development. There’s a long frontal boundary coming across the country that could have some steering power, the only thing in their way right now is a large trough of dry air from the Saharan layer hanging in the ocean above these systems. We will monitor the potential of these swells ahead, and hope they bring other systems in tow! We’ll have some leftover swell in the a.m. on Wednesday, and some small ridable waves this week, and it looks to bump up into next weekend, but that can all change and most likely will by then! Stay tuned!
