Coming Up on the Halfway Point

We had a great response yesterday as our first day up so let's keep it going!  Loving the support!

Isaac wasn't the best but he definitely made his presence known at select times.  Leftovers were found this morning and it was so boring out there that little guy above kept me preoccupied during the lulls. 

Below was pretty much all that was left over.

Bye bye Isaac, hello second half of the season.  September 1st marks the halfway point of hurricane season and even though we've had the crappiest season I can remember we still have 3 months to go.

Here's what forecasters are watching now.

Hurricane Isaac

Currently producing swell for basically the whole Gulf region but he's making life very difficult in Louisiana which is more concerning.  Levee's have been breached, power has been cut, and water rescues are already underway.  They don't need another direct hit.

Tropical Storm Kirk

Kirk will do nothing for anyone.  Models are showing Kirk head West but recurve dramatically to the N/NE.  Bermuda won't even get sizable waves.

Invest 98

Right now 98 is our best bet for waves.  98 is barely off the coast of Africa and is having a tough time with some dry air but it's going to take 2+ weeks before we have any idea whether or not well get waves.

This pattern is starting to piss me off.  But there is still much uncertainty as you can see by the models.  


Side note:

If you have noticed a decrease in quality of my pictures it's because I am saving up for a better one.  Probably the Nikon 70-200.  I procrastinate because I'm forking out an ass load of freaking money.  The lens I'm currently using now; well let's just put it this way, I wouldn't sell it to anyone because it's such a piece of 'ish.

I promise next swell I'll have the 70-200.  I'll just be banging my head against the sand 'cause I just spent 2 stacks.
