Tropical Storm Katia on the way…….But I had to show a few more of the awesome Friday, Hurricane Irene pictures from Gulfster.com  .  Many of the pictures on their site are Satellite Beach,  The Pier, and another spot I believe.

Tropical Storm Katia appears to be sending us waves on late Sunday or Monday, as it stands now, onshore winds bringing the storm in, in the 3 to 4 foot range.   By Sunday, it looks to be about 1500 miles from us, as a Cat 2 or 3 Hurricane.

Tropical Storm Katia, headed straight our way, 60 mph winds, 20 mph.  Possible hurricane by Wednesday some time.  Sunday could place it about 1500 miles WSW of us. Compliments of Stormpulse.com

With the sole intention of being an alarmist,  keep in your mind, preparation for a direct hit between us and Jacksonville.  No one is saying this,  just my thoughts.  Consider looking at your Boy Scout list of Hurricane preparation items.  Okay,  here endeth the alarmist 😉   …Not!  Katrina was 6 years ago in 2005.  It’s like they’re related 🙂

We should have some more news on this puppy (Katia) by Wednesday night, or Thursday.

I’m waiting on some pics for Saturday, in the chest high range from Irene, by Slater Lane.

Oh, in case you didn’t hear it or see it in today’s Florida Today.  Kelly Slater won the Tahiti Pro in huge waves meeting in the finals against Owen Wright.

Check out the killer slideshow at Magicseaweed.com  .  He was ranked 6th, after he skipped the tour in J-Bay (looked like 6 foot waves for that contest),  and he caught the once in a lifetime swell in Fiji.  30 to 40 foot , tow in and paddle in.  The same storm that they called the 50 year storm hitting Tasmania first, then Australia (thus the 50 year storm name) and on to Fiji and other places.   That big wave surf, very similar to Teahupoo except longer rides than Teahupoo.

Don’t forget about the 26th Annual NKF Surf FestivalLabor Day Weekend – Cocoa Beach – September 1-5, 2011. Read more about the Surf Festival here.
