Things look to pick back up as we move into September. It’s possible that we sneak in a storm over the next two weeks but it will have to be a fringe storm no from the main development region in the Atlantic.

Thanks to Grace to the south swell will reach our coast Thursday night and last possible through the day on Saturday this could lead to a high rip current risk. If you cant identify a rip current or don’t know how to survive one if caught in one please watch the video below!
