ATLANTIC SWELL LOOMING

  • Forecast models in the Atlantic have been going freakishly haywire lately.
  • MagicSeaweed shows not a purple blob, but a massive black blob storming across the North Atlantic.
  • It's setting up swell for Nazare, Mullaghmore and other European surf zones that can handle the energy.
  • This swell is forecast to hit the first half of next week.
  • So keep it locked here as the action unfolds.

IN SLATER'S ORBIT

  • Kelly Slater has some friends in some seriously high places.
  • And one of them, Astronaut and surfer Christina Koch, just returned to Earth.
  • Landing today, she broke the record for the longest single spaceflight by a female ... a remarkable 328 days.
  • Last month, Slater caught up with his fellow Floridian while she was at the International Space Station.
  • Congrats, Christina! After all that time, you must be frothing to get back in the water!

DANTAS TALKS 2020

  • Brazilian CT vet Wiggolly Dantas won the Volcom Pipe Pro last weekend.
  • After an impressive performance throughout the event, he's looking capitalize on the momentum.

HBD SEBASTIAN ZIETZ

  • And finally, a very happy birthday to the one and only Sebastian Zietz, who turns 32 years old today.
  • Hope you're having a good one, Seabass.
