Surf Forecast 11-07-2013

The cold front swells have begun!

The last few days in South Florida have been offering up some solid windchop in the waist to head high range. Yesterday, the wind died off which offered up some cleaning up, rapidly dropping surf. I hope you had a chance to sample some our of our finest washing machine-like, chop-chop. I saw some fun bowls at Sobe over the course of the swell.

Now, we've got a cold front stalled up in central Florida. Look for winds to increase from the NE as High Pressure builds in from the north. NWS calling for solid winds starting tonight and lasting through the weekend. Saturday looks like the peak at this point. Probably in the waist to chest range by midday Saturday and falling on Sunday afternoon.

Windchop is still on tap for the rest of today and a bit tomorrow. Look for the size to decrease ahead of our next cold front, which should come through Saturday night. Winds locally will start moving to a more southerly direction ahead of the front, but for now we're somewhere around ENE.

Friday and Saturday could be pretty fun upcoast. Timing the front could provide some nice clean conditions as the residual swell filters in. Nothing huge, but I'd bet that the best spots will be in the chest+ high range.

After the front, winds will increase out of the north. We could see a little clean line here ahead of the windswell that will follow. Hard to say exactly when, but keep an eye out when you start seeing the buoys upcoast really starting to crank, a little swell could show in 12 or so hours. I've been trying to pinpoint these little windows, but our swell window constantly fools me. If the fetch gets put down in just a slightly different patch of ocean, we wind up with totally different results. That being said, there's a chance for a small little north to sneak in. Afterwards, plenty of windchop. Looking to peak at about waist high+ on Tuesday, then declining.

Well, we're back in surf season. Pretty active couple of weeks!

Thanks Craig! Good Chiropractics=WAVES!

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!

Surf Forecast 10-22-2013

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.
