Weak Winter

Here we go with a weak Winter and a Weak forecast. Don't  mean to be negative but this Winter has mainly been a non surfing Winter for many of us.  A couple of scraps here and there but not enough to feed our hungry surf appetites.  Maybe Spring will come thru. 

For the next few days the forecast is for 10-15 knt winds out of the NE thru Sunday and increasing slightly out of the E for Mon (15-20) going SE and improving things slightly. Tueday may bring half decent ridables with SE/S winds in that range which of course you all know works for SowBee. Further out a decent cold front comes in later in the week but the models don't show wave propagation patterns yet. Still might be worth keeping an eye on.  I'm headed to my every 3 month migration to Chile next week so maybe you'll get some when I'm gone. I'm stoked to go to a wave rich area even if it means putting on a fullsuit. SoPac has been firing this year (probably at our expense).  Lots of Surfrider events coming up so support and keep the positive vibes. Maybe King Neptune will reward us.

Nominate someone for Dade County poster,


OK, so there's been a lot of discussion of the geeky enviro threads (would you pencil necks shut up already). I realize the group hug gets a little old to some of you, and I admit it can get a little gay at times. Not like greased up dildos gay, like gay gay. But I LOVE the way the site has been running in the past year. (Thanks AP for reminding me about the anniversary date).

The bridge protest was one of the coolest things done by the surfing community in South Florida history. Surfrider provides a positive image of surfers to mainstream America. Mostly I like the constant updates, and continued traffic to the site. There is still a spike when swells come, but traffic remains up even though there's no surf to talk about on a surf site. Hopefully this makes the advertisers happy, and I really URGE you to support them with your gear purchases. Thanks to all of the past and present advertisers who've helped keep this site going.

There is now a surfer in da House!!!!!!!


To all who contacted their peeps - THANK YOU!!

To all you whiners - back to our regular scheduled programming: it's flat, pray for waves.Tongue out

Actually, pray real hard and hope that the good karma of folks who went the extra mile smiles upon you. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha - so stoked!

Really though, keep an eye on the ocean after lunch and keep the reports comin. Winds predicted to shift NW 25kt in Cocoa first thing in the AM. That gives potential for refracto.

Waves on the way? cu B

Our crack crew of forecasters has been looken at the models and we have a shot at some north swell. Could be a Palm Beach County and North but cuB some here 2! Unbelievably bad year so this may be our best set up. Winds are forecast to be NW for about 20 hours or more. Starting Wednesday. If I can get this damn gash on my heal to .ah heal I could get in the water too. If Greg Gordo will ever get me my fins back from Costa so I can set up my favorite 5 fin rocket sled I might get some more waves and fewer stitches! So keep an eye on it for some south wind swellwave on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning.

Otherwise get yo asss on the  O B A M A   BUS!
