Hope everyone got to surf this past swell. Pics are starting to come in. There are some Sobe pics as well as some good shots of RR. I like the angle of Jose and some of the watershots. On top of that we have a real nice gallery from our ol friend Blaze in the South Pacific.
As for this week, we have a dry front coming down. A quick shot of North winds, stronger upcoast lighter down here. This will occur this evening and thru tomorrow . Unfortunately minimal chance of NW' erlies but never say never. Tomorrow look for waist high North windswell maybe shoulder high in select places (Palm beaches or maybe even South) with a 10-15 knt North wind More NW in central Fla.
Further out this weekends low setup is looking like a bust . Too bad as the models had it blowing up earlier in the week. Longer range models hinting of NE fetch aimed at us. Thank god for fall weather and waves.

Sozbech is going off. Size, winds are in alignment...YET it 's surprisingly mixed up BUT am I complaining? Hell NA! Sets are beautiful cobra heads striking at all who dare the drop. Dave making them all and being rewarded with barrel after barrel. Others getting ground into the sand if they make the drop and those who don't make the drop.....well it is the classic South Beach sitting chair position as they fly 5 to 10 feet out onto the flats! That's what I call being pitched! Mid-beach has long OH lines and it's feathering on the second reef. TJ and I watched in amazement as 5 wave sets poured in. Sand bars are a mess there so many closeouts and very dredgy. High tide will be better but what will the wind be by then?

Winds clocked NNW last night and then NW in the early morning. They're starting to clock back and the marine forecast has them N 15-20kts for the day. Same forecast has 2-4ft of swell in the water holding through Sunday. So, I anxiously wait an hour for first light and hopefully some clean faces for drops with a 20kt wind - in the face.

Well the chop fest has been with us for a few days now. Yesterday afternoon winds dropped and the rain stopped just in time for the chillens to score candy. (Keela, Mason don’t hide the 10 lbs of Halloween loot under your beds-remember ANTS!) This morning it seems we're under the influence of Noel and less of the High. Winds have picked up some and the direction is now NNE and the clouds are moving at a good clip. This effect will clean things up but also increase the drift. I do not see any chance of NW winds in Florida. Never-the-less, we should see an improvement in wave quality here today and tomorrow AND could see a better possibility of increasing swell underneath the chop. Swell component will depend on the track Noel takes. More Easterly Noel travels, the more you'll have to travel further up coast.
