At least we are in the pattern of ridables as of late. Some interesting patterns coming up. First we get a short shot of SE windchop on Monday. Models are iffy on the fetch so it still remains to be seen if it pans out. We need at least 15 knts and 110 deg wind to allow traction on the Fla straits to give us those fun SE ridables that we usually get this time of year. Some of you have noticed the past few years we sometimes get light local winds with very fun SE windswell as the winds are stornger down the straights. This one has the possibility of that setup but it will be short lived as a weak front comes down early in the week and changes the wind patterns. Up the road offers up weak NE swell also starting tomorrow and the stronger NE swell now purported to arrive sometime Tuesday (barring the decay effect). There is a possibility of the swell being greeted by SW-NW winds somewhere upcoast as the front approaches but the timing of that is the wildcard. By Wed the winds turn North and pick up chopping things out but also giving us a short shot of N/NE windchop. Way further out (like next weekend) a pattern of increasing E/SE winds comes up and gives us a decent chance of bread and butter windchop down here. Overall a decent pattern to keep us happy before the flat season arrives. Enjoy

Very nice low wrapping up the spring season. Unfortunately we didn't get much down here but those of you that made the drive scored some biggy's if you were at the right spot. For this weekend we will have diminishing NE swell to the tune of around 4 ft at 10-11 sec for Sat and smaller and weaker Sunday -likely 2-ft at 9-10 sec. Winds will primarily be SE and fairly light particularly in the Am. The further North you go the better the chance of lighter winds as the High pressure moves out into the Atlantic and a weak trough moves thru the upper parts of the state. Best bet will be Treasure coast North but North Palm beaches may have decent ridables at the right spot. Sat a much better call than Sun unless you crave small loggables. Further out a cut off low develops but its way to far out to predict anything right now. Word has it the Jet stream is lifting this year giving us a possible dryish summer with increased chances of Hurricanes . Interesting stuff so stay tuned. Enjoy...
