Sozbech is going off. Size, winds are in alignment...YET it 's surprisingly mixed up BUT am I complaining? Hell NA! Sets are beautiful cobra heads striking at all who dare the drop. Dave making them all and being rewarded with barrel after barrel. Others getting ground into the sand if they make the drop and those who don't make the drop.....well it is the classic South Beach sitting chair position as they fly 5 to 10 feet out onto the flats! That's what I call being pitched! Mid-beach has long OH lines and it's feathering on the second reef. TJ and I watched in amazement as 5 wave sets poured in. Sand bars are a mess there so many closeouts and very dredgy. High tide will be better but what will the wind be by then?

Winds clocked NNW last night and then NW in the early morning. They're starting to clock back and the marine forecast has them N 15-20kts for the day. Same forecast has 2-4ft of swell in the water holding through Sunday. So, I anxiously wait an hour for first light and hopefully some clean faces for drops with a 20kt wind - in the face.

Well the chop fest has been with us for a few days now. Yesterday afternoon winds dropped and the rain stopped just in time for the chillens to score candy. (Keela, Mason don’t hide the 10 lbs of Halloween loot under your beds-remember ANTS!) This morning it seems we're under the influence of Noel and less of the High. Winds have picked up some and the direction is now NNE and the clouds are moving at a good clip. This effect will clean things up but also increase the drift. I do not see any chance of NW winds in Florida. Never-the-less, we should see an improvement in wave quality here today and tomorrow AND could see a better possibility of increasing swell underneath the chop. Swell component will depend on the track Noel takes. More Easterly Noel travels, the more you'll have to travel further up coast.

Yep, we're in for a week of sloppy, choppy, lumpy, bumpy, dumpy wind chop but hey it's what we're all weaned on so...it keeps us strong. We're also on the verge of monumental political challenge; especially on Miami Beach, the homefront for most environment, development and beach access issues. Early voting sites opened today and I STRONGLY encourage you to go vote if there is an election in your community. Off year elections are notorious for low turnout, so a community such as ours can have a BIG impact on who wins and loses. You can check out the Miami Herald reccomendations or you can email me at email@example.com if you want to know my personal picks. GO SURF - GO VOTE - BE STRONG - MAKE A BETTER FUTURE FOR EVERYONE.
