Report Pete

Todays report

Surf report hea (add in little whistle to mimic old Bird's phone report).  Nothing At South this Morning. Another visual from Delray area also reports nothing.  Looks like these N/NW winds were duds.  Shame the Low in the NE didn't pull into the Atlantic or we would have had some major swellage. Maybe next time.

 Next few days see's an increase in NE slop chop . NE swell this weekend with NE winds. Maybe a lightening of winds Sunday with residual swell (for up road).  Plenty of action lately. As always- Enjoy

Forecast Pete

Friday and weekend forecast

Winds still cranking this morning 25 knts out of a more favorable E to near SE direction      (110 degrees).  Down South a bit in the lower keys the winds are already turning more SE (120  130 deg) and holding at 25 knts. This bodes well for us as traction sets up for us in the Fla straights and brings us SE  windchop/windswell combo.  Complicated weather pattern with the slow moving warm front and Low pressure in the Gulf (getting some rotation action going).  The winds will be a little slow to turn Southerly around here. Good thing is that the winds do drop to 10-15 this evening setting up for some sort of a cleanup. Tomorrow will drop considerably but should serve up some nice clean longboardable (maybe shortboardable) lines in the knee maybe waist high range.  Up coast will probably be pretty good at some point . Winds will be Southerly Early with maybe a tad Southwest turning SW then W and then NW thru the day but light (5-10 knts).  What kind of swell will be groomed by this this wind ? well that gets a little more complicated. We have SE residual windswell from Friday and more importantly an East fetch bringing in 4-5ft 8 to 9 sec windswell (more reliable). If these two meet are of similar heights we could be in for nice wedging peaks. 

Keep in mind this is mainly a Sat event with the winds turning North and waves dropping on Sun. 

Further out we see a decent NE swell starting next Friday  . Too early to tell what kind of conditions that will bring us but hopefully cleaner than what we have had of late. Enjoy
