Surf Forecast 10-11-2013

A little swell popped up on Thursday morning from some north fetch associated with the remnants of Karen. Another small, short lived event.

This weekend, there's a little swell way upcoast from some NE winds off the Carolinas. It has been in the chest high range with winds on it, but look for wind to subside this evening and in to tomorrow. Probably a pretty fun morning of waves in the waist to chest range. Way smaller to flat as you head south.

Next week. there's a shot of north winds forecast to blow Monday/Tuesday. It looks like another short lived event. There might be a little residual swell upcoast, but nothing big.

I'll probably be checking the forecast updates over the weekend, so leave a comment if you have any thoughts on the next chance for waves...

Surf Forecast 9-25-2013

Well, that last little bit of North fetch that was pointed in our direction never really materialized as waves. Luckily, we've got another shot at it for the weekend as a cold front is approaching.

At this time, it's looking like we will see some north fetch put down in our window, which should arrive as waves Friday in to Saturday. The swell then turns more NE in direction and increases bit in size. Basically, a good shot of waves down south then a much better chance of waves in the Palm Beaches and north for the weekend. Swell looks to peak Saturday in to Sunday.

Winds should be more NNW down south and more NE at upcoast beaches. Should be pretty solid (head high) upcoast, smaller down south.

Surf Forecast 9-16-2013

Humberto will be sending the upcoast beaches a long period groundswell during the work week. Winds look to be in the 10-15 kt range all week, so unfortunately, there doesn't look to be a window to surf clean conditions. Size looks to peak on Thursday, with a combo of 12/13 second east swell, with some 7 second windswell on top. It should be in the head high range, but a bit messy. Smaller again by weekend.

Additionally, the forecasts are calling for some NE winds off the Carolinas pointed in our direction, which might translate to a small bump later this week. This system followed by another about a week away that is is supposed to start out with some strong 45+kt winds, then sustain for a bit. Given the direction and duration, that swell for next week should create a bump for us down in to PB county. It's a ways off, but bears some watching.

The winds off the Carolinas look pretty good for the swell to make it down in to the Palm Beaches with orientation of fetch at NE to SW Given the way the wind is blowing already, I'd keep an eye out starting tomorrow, and keep the chance for waves through the early part of the weekend.

Quick Update 8-26-2013

Some NE swell is going to arrive tomorrow and fading in to Wednesday. Looks like Tuesday should peak around 3-4 feet at 8 seconds. Should be filling-in around Palm Beach County and north. Better size further north, better wind further south.

After this little swell, the tropics should start to provide more action. A few things to watch out there, but nothing worth talking about at this time.

Hit it tomorrow between north palm beach and treasure coast, and I'm sure you'll get some fun ones.
