JEREMY Johnston, Aaron “Gorkin” Cormican and Evan surfing Tropical Storm Dorian at New Smyrna. The storm eventually fell apart but sent Central Florida some fun rippable surf.

Dorian, what a let down he was. If ever there was a storm destined to raise the hopes of tired surf hacks desperate to play a little word association, it was he. And what a tease Dorian became, starting off a bit ropey before improving markedly; at one point promising a trip through the swell/hurricane goldilocks zone. As quickly as he intensified it all fell apart, he was a mere remnant low as he approached the Caribbean. Then heck, he intensified, regaining his name and status only to fall away again, torn apart by unfavourable winds. Unbelievably, blink-and-you-would-have-missed-it, he returned for a third time as an extra-tropical cyclone off North Carolina without making much impact. 

Having returned more times than Jesus Christ we thank the Lord someone surfed it.
