    Yeah the NOAA models are showing one weak system off the east coast about 120 hours out, and another one approaching the islands...At least a little activity to keep an eye on...(while there were also fun waves tonight).

    Nope, no bar stools, no ballyards, and no "back in the days" for me. Drinking, sports chasing a ball, and memory lane are all for idiots, exclusively!!
    Live in the present.
    Can't make up my I go to PR again this year, or do I skip this year?? I usually book ahead;maybe this year, I will just grab a flight when I know there is a large impending swell approaching the island......

    Here comes Danny-

    As of 2:00 am EDT Tue Aug 18 2015 ...
    Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure
    located several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde
    Islands have become better organized over the past 24 hours.
    Environmental conditions appear conducive for additional
    development, and a tropical depression will likely form within the
    next day or two while the system moves west-northwestward at 10 to
    15 mph.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent

    One key factor will be the big dry air mass coming off Africa north of the would-be storm. If that air mass builds a significant ridge of high pressure far enough west, the storm will stay in the lower latitudes and have little hope to bring us surf. Definitely something to watch, though...

    It will encounter wind shear as it approaches the Lesser Antilles, and be torn apart.

    El Niño lives!

    Book the swell, Cuda, book the swell.

    #1, so you don't get skunked, and numero dos, airfares are so friggin expensive anyways that it won't really matter much if you book 3 months out or 3 days out.

    I don't think vibe-ing the storm like that is helpful.

    I'm feelin ya Nat.

    Last time I broke the board out was during that tropical storm (Bill?). The day before and the day after. Day OF was just too big and squirrely. I don't SUP, so I bodysurf it on real small days (yesterday). This f-in high pressure and 100+ degree days is FINALLY lookin to break.

    Also... Neighbor lady is in the clink til Dec.

    Gotta study for a whiz test, so no bud til I pass that.

    Boring summer so far.

    What if...

    This incest develops into a nice Cat 2 or 3... Slowly moves its way from So Fla, about 100 miles offshore, all the way up to Maine, during a 2 week period... 10 sec period swells as far as the eye can see... Belmar goes off... NJShredmachine resurfaces... KFC turns and 23 footers... Riley's diesel vendor feels a moment of deep regret for all those times he was late on deliveries... GIVES Riley a 50g bud as big as yer fist... Riley goes to visit Seldom to share this tasty bounty and get barrelled for days... The storm then hits a major outbreak of fish balls and rice just outside Frankie McDonald's personal TV Station in Nova Scotia, turns around, and slowly heads BACK south to the Carribbean... O Barry hops a flight to PR, flies OVER the eye during his flight... The storm parks in the Western Carribbean for weeks, sending flawless long green beans up yonder to Nat and Paulie... The surf is so epic that Gaffer temporarily returns to Corpus to join the frivolity... DPSup gets a month of barrells... East Coast, then West... Nat and Paulie have so many days of tasty waves that they have to tap out "no mas" on the beach...


    Or it could just fizzle...

    I like my way better.

    Ah most of yous probably don't remember but in either 99 or 2000 there was similar set up

    New Jerseyian wave fired for three days straight and lingering swell for the next two days after
