Surf Report

Good Day… The surf today is still really small but showing some faint signs of building with some knee high wind chop that is mushy, weak and marginally rideable. The sun is already blazing with a mix of clouds but the heat and humidity are in place once again. The forecast is still calling for it to build a bit for tomorrow and even a little more for Monday, but we will have to see if that pans out. Good day to hang out on the beach so come on down and if you do, bring the longboard to push the kids in….

The Atlantic basin remains free of any organized tropical features. Large areas of dry stable air and dust along with strong vertical wind shear will continue to suppress tropical cyclone formation across the basin through at least early next week. These unfavorable conditions may lessen later next week which could allow for a more favorable environment for tropical development. One area in particular that we are monitoring is the Gulf of Mexico where low pressure might form during the latter part of next week.
