Surf Forecast 9-15-2014

Hi everyone!

I'm working on an extended forecast, which will be cross-posted on DadeCoSurf.com and a new site I'm developing called ThankYouSurfing.com - Surf Forecasts, Travel and Community. 

In the meantime, here's a quick update for you...

Hurricane Edouard is chugging along nicely in the Atlantic. The storm has thrown down wind over a significant patch of ocean, so this storm will be producing a solid tropical swell! Right now, we're looking at forefunners showing up on Tuesday, with the bulk of the swell showing at upcoast spots between Wednesday and Thursday. Most spots in our region WON'T hold a swell of this type, so choose your spots carefully.

Surf Forecast 8-4-2014

A quick update for Tropical Storm Bertha:

Some lines from Bertha will be arriving now through mid-week at spots above the Bahamas shadow. Since Bertha is moving rather quickly and isn't too powerful, swell potential is limited. That being said, standouts in the Space Coast and north will see waves in the chest+ range. Winds are forecast to be offshore for the peak on Tuesday, too. It will drop off rapidly on Wednesday and be just about flat on Thursday.

Go get some!

Kelly Slater in Miami Beach

The Surfrider RAP team met up with 11 time ASP World Champ Kelly Slater, here on Miami Beach this past weekend. Kelly is a long time Surfrider supporter, and was impressed with our Rise Above Plastics (RAP) campaign. We hope to have Kelly provide additional support in the near future for our state-wide plastic bag ban initiative.

Don't forget the Surfrider movie night on the 25th! Check the DCS forum for more info.
