Back to normal....

After the recent run of big surf, its tempting to forget that flatness reigns supreme in Dade County. But for April and May, you can't ask for more. Two excellent swells in two months, that are usually two of the worst months for surf in the region. Hopefully this is a sign of an active tropical season. At least, we have the photos to remember and thanks to all the contributors for sending those along. Thanks also to all of you for your comments and report updates. That is the real strength of the site and hopefully more than a few of you were helped by the user comments and reports.

Tuesday morning thread

No surprises with the morning reports. Palm Beaches pretty much out of control. Lake worth pier getting the bottom scrapped and cleaned by bomber sets. Delray bombing, whitewater way outside. Rodger looked at HH and didn't go out (not really picking it up), saw more activity going Southaways. Initial cams for south give an indication that it is breaking and people are out. 17 sec hits now arriving on the Ft Pierce Buoy, yea baby!!!!!
