You may have missed World Oceans Day on June 8th, but it's never too late to DO SOMETHING to make our playground a little cleaner. Plus you still have International Surfing Day on June 20th!

May 15th at the Surfrider Meeting at the MB Botanical Gardens - 7 to 9:15 p.m. Wave forecasting expert to speak at Surfrider Foundation Miami Community meeting:
Alex Gibbs, Senior Forecaster with the National Weather Service, will speak at our community meeting this month. Gibbs possesses a keen understanding of and passion for nearshore wave modeling.
This will be a treat for the hard-core surf community, the amatuer wave forecasters among us (where's Pete Ferrer?) and the public safety community since Gibb's talk will include rip current dynamics.
Surfrider will also update the community on key initiatives, activism options, serve pizza & beer and flash some hot surf footage on the screen.

Quick little forecast:
Spring weather is upon us and our normal springtime change-of-seasons windchop is here. Winds should be in the 15-20 kt range for the upcoming weekend and in to next week. A low is going to skirt the coast near the Bahamas shifting the wind more NE early next week.
Waves are in the flat to waist high range depending on tide and sandbars. Look for the tide to drain a bit more, then a high tide at about 5pm.

Nice low setting up as we speak out in the North Atlantic. A nice captured fetch is aiming some good winds at us . Downside is that it will be pretty far from us (mostly Canadian Maritimes) . This said low is centered around 38 deg N and 56 deg W. I like the elongated NE fetch in the 30-35 knt range . Been tracking this low with low confidence the past week but the latest Satellite pic makes me breathe a little easier . Thursday PM and Friday (the peak of the swell ) could produce fun ridables in the NE exposed spots upcoast. I'm thinking waist to chest maybe + sets with lightish South winds turning more SW into Friday . Drops off pretty fast into Saturday but still could be fun in the Am . Pau (done) by Sunday. Stoked to be back home and get some Fla action.
