    I read somewhere that on October 18th 2031 we will get a sweet cane swell that will send overhead surf to everyone from FL to Maine. Mark your calendars, clear your schedule and wax up your board, only 18 years to go.

    Gracias, 'Bat-mon. Won't be in PG, will be in the other PG. And you're right about those light easterlies, sweet as. When I was there in October last year, I hit massive winds as you experienced. Actually blew 3 newbs from Alaska on their surfboards out to sea. Boat rescue, the works. Not wise to mess with 50 mph offshore gusts!

    Aw man... I can't surf that day... Family obligations.

    The oscillation is favorable for development for the first two weeks of September, but there is continuous dry air being blown off the sahara inhibiting development. After we make it into mid September we get hit with a very unfavorable oscillation.

    I think it's very probable to say if we see nothing develop over the next week or two we can hang up our chances of getting a cape verde storm this year. That doesn't mean we won't see those storms that form between the carribean and bermuda spin up and give us some swell though.

    I've been monitoring the tropics closely, and still nothing super promising show on the forecast charts. There are 2 waves off of Africa to monitor, but none of them show great promise right now. At the very end of August, beginning of September, you are almost guaranteed to see something, so its starting to get a little disturbing
