tropical storms are fueled by warm tropical waters... Storms weaken over land.

To be specific, if the land mass is mountainous like the island of Hispaniola, then it can disrupt the convection and weaken the cyclone. If it comes across swamp, like Wilma did when it back doored Florida from the Yucatan, it can actually gain strength. This next weekend could be very interesting, due to the location of the Atlantic high pressure ( "The Bermuda High" ), which is kinda east of where it has been the last few years. Stay in shape, and fix the dings on your big boy board. Get your chores done.
Indeed, Wilma caught everyone off guard, can't believe how strong she got going over Florida, good example of how unpredictable these storms really are.

Hell yeah man. The reason I get up early every morning and paddle out, even when it ain't pretty.
Yes he is, if there is a storm or a front in our window he will frequently put a video out and walk you through
it and put it in terms that everyone understands....plus he surfs too!! Tropical Tidbits is another informational webcast you could check out, he is also very good.
