Slop Slapped

A classic stormy-style Northeast mess.  Slop in the surf, slop in the sand, with big rips, nasty foams, weeds and organic debris, and of course, plenty-o-plastics. We’ll skip gratuitous pics of the mess as we’ll probably have a heap of it this fall. Tomorrow we’ll suffer more clouds, but with a wind shift to the West, things will begin to get more interesting as the week progresses. It’s no secret to longtime Readers that the West is the preferred Wind of the Readings. But too much of a good thing never works out well for the Island so it will be interesting to see the conditions by Friday after 5 days of West.

Lucky for us, Shawn Casey hit the slop this afternoon with his crazy-hybrid, "flexible" surf style.
