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.

Surf Forecast 1-2-2014

Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

We've got some waves on the way.

A strong cold front passes through S. Fla tonight, Winds out of the north will pick up and be briisk during the day on Friday. Waves should build in to the afternoon, and in to Saturday. Looks like there's some swell in this one, though the winds look to be sideshore, from the north turning more to the ESE during the weekend. There's a lot of movement in the winds on this front, so there could be some more favorable conditions than forecast. Keep an eye out.

Another front approaches Sunday in to Monday. Winds will clock offshore as the front approaches from SW to NW and eventually to N again by Monday night. There's a nice little NE groundswell forecast to hit the area as the winds turn. Should be pretty good to be upcoast as that front turns the winds directly in to the oncoming 12 second groundswell - if that low performs as forecast. Watch the buoys and the fronts to score upcoast as the wind switches.

We could get some swell with the next front next Tuesday or so, too.

Surf Forecast 12-17-2013

Another week of relatively weak conditions.

A cold front came through and cooled things down, but didn't provide much in the way of swell. A small trace is showing, but it isn't anything really that rideable down this way. Look for winds to pick up a bit out of the north, then clock to a southeast direction by the weekend. Wind is forecast to stay in the barely-making-waves range, but I imagine we'll see some tide/wind conditions line up to make a few fun ones.

Longer range, this pattern looks to pretty much hold until next year. Enjoy the holidays!
