Dr. Craig Kaler owner of Ocean Chiro (see add on right) has been working magic on my family. The reason I bring this up is that it is clear where the waves are going to be this weekend and that's his local spot! So be kind, respectful and give the good doctor a wave for me!
AFTER YOU SURF CHECK OUT my band. The MEMPHIS KELLY BAND is playing at the Miami Shores Street Festival on NE 2nd Ave and NE 97th Street. The MEMPHIS KELLY BAND Starts playing at 6:30 PM.

Wow. It's the end of October and we still haven't seen much hurricane juice. I really thought we'd get at least one solid one, but time has slipped and we're talking cold fronts. Weird tropical season. There's been a bunch of named systems, but we never got any swell production.
Looking forward, we've got some bread and butter chop for the end of the work week and in to the weekend. Looks like the cold front passes sometime on Weds/Thursday and the northerly winds start-in behind it. Friday should be up around 20, so it could be pretty fun. No monster chop, but some rideables in maybe the waist high range in to Saturday.
Keep an eye on the reports for updates.

Surfrider Foundation - Miami
Urgent request for surfing, diving, fishing beach-lover community:
The City of Miami Beach is about to sign a mega-deal to private label a sunscreen with the Miami Beach brand name on it to be sold at concession stands and marketed around the world. We are extremely concerned that the sunscreen formula will not be Bio-Degradable and REEF safe. This is not an alarmist laughing matter peeps. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) research "Sunscreens cause rapid bleaching of hard corals, even at extremely low concentrations."
Check it here : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2291018/ What your ocean and beach NEED YOU TO DO TODAY - PLEASE: Take a moment to sign the petition one of our awesome members created and get this out to your friends/family/social circle to and ask them to do the same...
RAPID ACTION - Petition started - YOUR VOICE NEEDED : Make sure Miami Beach branded Sunscreen is BIO-DEGRADABLE / REEF SAFE and labeled as such!! Please sign and share link on your FB. This will go to Commissioners, City Attorney, and Assistant City Manager.

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...
