Red Alert, Red alert , Joaquin looks like a swell maker

In case you live in a cave and haven't noticed, there is a cat 4 out there in the Central Bahamas .  I don't expect this forum to take off like in years past (yea I know, its passe ) but damn there has to be some lurkers here that can chime in . This is what we were originally all about .  Anyhows I've been watching dis spinner from afar in my Homeland 5,000 miles away . Incidentally I was back in South Fla this past weekend for family tragedy but only stayed a few days .  Twin Brother Rod scored excellent waves Tuesday upcoast (By Fla standards) . I missed it by one day (Boo hoo) . I'll try to post some of his pics .

    Anyhows back to the present moment . Joaquin has been givning the models fits but the track seems to be more in alignment now . Here's the good news : Probable slot swell sometime today . Yes they are fabled and short lived so if you score , brag all about it right here . As Joaquin  rides da ridge North it will enter the Central Fla swell window . Expect East swell shld high or so , maybe mo bigga or maybe mo smalla (You know this is Fla ) Sometime Saturday . Winds will be veering NW then West (Can it get any better).  Big problem is the storm will now be racing NE and at a good clip which always spells bummers as we have come to learn . Still there is good potential for East swell upcoast Saturday into Sunday and possible NE swell on Monday , even a fabled kick back swell with a more Northerly direction Late Monday into Tueaday . The big question is : " Will South beach work?" . I've already been asked that question and i would say No. it doesnt look like a swell maker for down Southland . But for those that beleive in Virginia and Santa Claus , there is still a glimmer of hope. Fla has been wave starved for too long , let the swell trains roll in .
