Forecast Pete

Surf forecast

Nice low setting up as we speak out in the North Atlantic.  A nice captured fetch is aiming some good winds at us . Downside is that it will be pretty far from us (mostly Canadian Maritimes) .  This said low is centered around 38 deg N and 56 deg W. I like the elongated NE fetch in the 30-35 knt range . Been tracking this low with low confidence the past week but the latest Satellite pic makes me breathe a little easier . Thursday PM and Friday (the peak of the swell ) could produce fun ridables in the NE exposed spots upcoast. I'm thinking waist to chest maybe + sets with lightish South winds turning more SW into Friday . Drops off pretty fast into Saturday but still could be fun in the Am . Pau (done) by Sunday.  Stoked to be back home and get some Fla action.

Surf Forecast

Pete here doing a stand in surf forecast (yea its been awhile) . My vested interest is I'll be beck in the ol stomping grounds in Two weeks . Be in Miama for a week for a family reunion. Hoping to get in da watta.  Spring time of year in the air. First we have a low level East windswell setting for upcoast spots this weekend. More of note is a fairly nice elongated N/NE fetch setting up next Wednesday from Georgia coast all the way up to New England. before you get too excited about this little event remember its a long way out and models tend to change and be unreliable at 125 hrs out and further . Still this event is worth taking notice as the winds will be fairly light in South Fla later next week. The said fetch is a result of a large high pressure (not low pressure ) centered around West edge of new York getting pinched and elongating. There might be a nice fetch of 30-35 knt winds pointed in the Fla direction. One minus is the relative width and breadth of this fetch (its a skinny one) , Mitigated partially  by the fetch length and duration.  Something to keep an eye and ear out for starting Wed and even into next weekend. Happy Easter hunting

Surf and Music Fest this Weekend

Kulchashok Music Fest Review - Saturday April 5 was a beautiful day in Pompano Beach Florida for many reasons. The sun was out, the weather was perfect for the beach and there was a great vibe all day at the 1st annual Kulcha Shok Surf & Muzik Festival on the south side of the Pompano Beach Pier. Regardless of the fact there was no waves, the event went off really well. Read more in the comments section of the forum post.
