Surf Forecast 2-4-2014

Flat down in Miami this week.... Small groundswell at about 3 feet at 9 seconds should subside as we head further in to the week. Small but rideable upcoast with winds turning offshore on Sunday.

Down here, not much to report. Possibility for some cold front swell next Monday/Tuesday.

Quick Update 1-22-2014

Flat in So Fla as of Wednesday morning. We should see a little pickup these evening, and maybe in to tomorrow morning. These cold fronts have been making a little wave in Palm Beach County, and barely touching us down in Miami. This one doesn't seem too different than the last few, maybe a little more wind strength and duration. Hopefully that translates to a rideable bump down here in SoBe.

Saturday upcoast sees a little NE swell with favorable winds. Not huge or all that powerful, but it should be in the waist to chest+ zone.

Next shot at a swell down in Miami comes in about a week. Looking like Wednesday or so...

Surf Forecast 1-10-2014

After a lackluster end of 2013, this year started with some more activity. We've had a couple of fronts with some swell hitting down in SoBe. There's a lot of frothing, but it hasn't really done it's thing. Upcoast enjoyed some good swell last Sunday/Monday with favorable winds.

Right now, there's a little bit of Southeast wind creating some windswell. It's up to about thigh-high. It should blow out of the South tomorrow, so there could be a little wave at the right tide.

Upcoast has an easterly windswell of 7 feet at 8 or 9 seconds, so we're looking for a cleanup- maybe late Saturday and then turning NW with a front on Sunday. If you time it right, it'll could get pretty good. Not huge, but waist to chest+ high. Biggest on Saturday.

Further out, chance for a bounce/refracto swells Wed/Thurs of next week.
