tonite check out the ft pierce bouy

West winds howling upcoast, direction has been pretty much due west for the last few hours, but starting to clock around at the St Aug buoy. There are definitely sometimes when we had refracto swell at south pointe with winds upcoast WNW (290-300 deg). It doesn't make sense to me, but there were times when you'd get some ridable surf with winds that have barely any north in them. Also, not having directional wave buoys, you cannot tell where the waves are headed.

Will we or won't we

WW3 and the NSW are well off in terms of timing. NSW is calling for the all important NW winds to be strongest from Jupiter to Miami in the all important over 25 kts range. It is always best to have those winds from Flagler to Deerfield. That pushes all the water down to South Beach. But looks like the best setup we've had this year for a swell here. BUT the winds up there are in the no good 15 to 20 range.I have a meeting at 9:30 at the airport arranged by the cranky old man with the longboard. Thanks allot MIKE! But what that means to you-my close personal friends is WAVES until noon at least.
