Danielle was forecasted to peak two days ago, I think the swell peaked this morning. More slayage from the boys.
Shot photos all day, Hampton slab wave session in the evening.

I apologize in advance for the cropping issues, in an attempt to hide the locations I’ve also mangled the photos. These are shot from 3 different locations in NH/ME. Had a great session this evening with the boys up at a popular spot in Maine, beautiful sunset and glassy waist high surf.

Danielle has just been updated to a Category 4 Hurricane, it’s still moving westward but it’s looking like it will stay out to sea.
It’s looking like Danielle could be a quick swell event, coming in late tomorrow and fading out around Monday night. This is a forecast image for Tropical Storm Earl on Sunday the 8th. Still a ways out for accurate forecasting but if the storm followed this exact track we could see some solid surf for next week.
Either way there should be waist high surf through the middle of this coming week so get out there.
UPDATE Wednesday 9:30pm – While the path of Earl is still unknown some of the models are showing it building to a major hurricane and passing close the south eastern US. There is also another disturbance behind Earl that is favored to turn into a tropical storm.
Quoted from Jeff Masters blog this afternoon
“The latest GFS model run develops this wave into a tropical depression 3 – 4 days from now. I can’t see any reason why this would not occur. Conditions for tropical cyclone development will remain favorable in the Eastern Atlantic for at least the next week, and the GFS models has successfully predicted the development of both Danielle and TD 7 over the past two weeks. This new wave probably has a better chance of hitting the U.S. East Coast than either Danielle or TD 7.”
