Waves this week !!!

Looks like we will finally get some ridables this week.  Firstly the wind increase from our high pressure above us will likely pan out as the models had predicted.  Look for increasing E then SE wind chop from 15-20 knts winds starting today and going thru Wed. There will also be quite a few hours of S winds so a mild clean up should occur for you die hard baby S swellers. The real story is that giant low that is currently deepening off Nova Scotia. All the models agree that there will be sideband fringe swell from the NE in the Palm Beaches North starting late Tuesday and going thru Thursday AM.  Primary angle will be 45 deg shifting to 60 deg by sometime Thursday. Heights range from 4-6-8 ft at 13-14 sec  on most models with the 4ft 13 sec scenario being the most popular. The better models take the Bahama blockage into account so don't expect much South of the Palm Beaches (NE swell wise).  As Mr W correctly pointed out thereis a good possibility of offshores coinciding with with the NE swell on Thursday. So there you have it. Sumting for everyone. Cross your fingers and be good, spread the positive vibes. King Neptune has been watching us and will reward those that do.  I officially declare this King Neptune week. Go out there and enjoy. Tongue out

Mark Wilder's latest adventure

Mark Wilder has been pretty into his most recent project somewhere in Mex. And I'm not being glib about the "somewhere" thing, he isn't really letting the cat out of the bag about this spot he's been going to. Rumor has it he blindfolded the last group to go down. Anyway, let him explain it: "Due to the discussions regarding secret spots @ six months ago on your "site".... I thought I'd give people out there something to get stoked on and chat about from the vid. Just wanted to let them know that Dave and I are back in Mex finishing the Second chapter in my upcoming flick and wanted to share w/ them what the happenings are w/ my vid and one of their own, Dave Begley, and what we've been up too....So if people are wondering where me and Dave have disappeared to... now they know. I'm just trying to keep the dream alive and let them know that if you try hard enough you just might find the the ultimate prize.... and for Surfer's ...that would be finding a world class point break all your own! Now we're back in Mex after exploring the surrounding area and coastline and now we're back to film it. I'll just let you write it uo so you can post it up w/ the vid at your convenience."

BTW - Mark it - book it - lock it in.  Surfrider is bringing in Mike Watson from Surfline to do a seminar Thursday, March 27th - "The Science of Waves".  We're all jr. surf meteorologists and we'll get to hear from someone gettin paid to get it right.  Gonna be very cool.

Yeah, yeah, Wyatt - take your head out of Obama's @$$ and get to postin - punk!
