December 16, 2014
  Tuesday: 1-2 feet in small swell
Tuesday: 1-2 feet in small swell.

Surf looks to stay on the small side the next few days. Mostly just a very small and faint long period swell is showing on the buoys. Probably longboard only.

No major swells are showing in the mid to long range forecast. A series of weak low pressure systems look to form along the U.S. Eastern Seaboard but hug the coast too much to kick back swell.

Possible swell for Christmas week. One model hints that a strong low will be off of Newfoundland early next week. But, long way away in time and distance. Just something to hope for!

Next update Thursday morning.

December 12, 2014
  Friday: Condinued NE Ground swell
Friday: 3-6 feet in continued ground swell.

What a swell we have had the past week!

I expect the swell to continue into Friday, albeit, with smaller size.

Surf looks to last into Saturday but around 2-3 feet.

Local winds look to remain chilly and from the North/NW for the next couple of days.

There is a downward trend showing for this swell. But, it has lasted since Monday. That is a long duration swell for us!

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast. Looks like remnant swell into the weekend. Break out the longboards!

Next update Sunday morning.

  Tuesday: 6-10 feet in large NE swell
Tuesday: 6-10 feet in NE swell.

We should see large surf into Tuesday and last for a few days. It looks to peak on Tuesday and drop some into mid-week. We should see big rideable surf the rest of the week.

Local wind forecast looks to blow Northerly into Tuesday. North to NW winds and blowing kind of hard. This looks to put a surface chop on it.

Wind forecast calls for NW wind to continue into Wednesday and Thursday. However, it is also suppose to slow down. Thus, cleaner conditions with a dropping swell.

We should see rideable surf into Friday and the weekend with it dropping each day. Saturday probably will be around 2-3 feet.

Go Surf!

Next update Thursday night.

I'll take a look at the forecast on Monday night. Big surf coming!

  Saturday: 3-5 feet with semi-glassy/choppy conditions
Saturday: 3-5 feet.

Local winds have died down this Saturday morning. I expect it to clean up today. There should be a little bit of a wobble on the surface conditions due to the heavy persistent onshore wind we have seen.

Wind looks to stay light all day Saturday but turn from the NE into the afternoon.

Sunday should be similar but with local winds blowing Northerly. More sideshore choppy conditions.

It looks like we will see bigger surf into early week. Models shows increase in swell size for Monday and Tuesday.

A NE long period swell looks to fill in late Monday and into Tuesday. This is from a low pressure that looks to spin up near Bermuda. There are also NE wind fetch off the New England coast that should also aid in building the swell. Size looks to be pretty big on Tuesday.

Also, another low looks to spin up off of Hatteras mid-week. This looks to turn into a strong Nor'easter and rip up the New England coast. This looks to provide the NW winds and also probably send in a Northwest to North swell down to South Florida and provide NE swell for Central Florida.

NE ground swell looks to continue past mid-week.

Local wind forecast calls for NW winds next week.

We could be seeing some good NE swell next week. Check the swell models!

Next update Sunday night.

December 2, 2014
  Tuesday: 3-4 feet in choppy swell
Tuesday: 3-4 feet and choppy.

It looks like we will see an extended period of strong onshore winds with choppy rideable surf. Surf all week and into the weekend.

A possible low pressure system looks to form somewhere near Bermuda. This system could provide NE ground swell for the weekend. However, we need to see it not move so fast to the North. Probably NE ground swell arriving early next week from this system. Check the swell period models for this one.

Mostly all chop all week. Local wind forecast does call for lighter winds on Saturday.

Next update Friday morning.

November 27, 2014
  Thursday: 1 to 3 feet
Thursday: 1-3 feet in small rideable surf.

It looks like there are some rideable waves to be found. Early morning reports and cams shows small surf. Its chilly outside and the wind is blowing from the N-NW so dress warm!

Surf looks to stay on the small side for Friday and into the weekend but should remain rideable.

Local winds look to blow hard NW to N for the next few days and eventually veer from the NE into the weekend. This looks to provide small NE wind swell for the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday look to be 2-4 feet with NE winds.

Long range models shows an uptick in swell size for mid-week. Increased onshore winds also. It looks like starting on Tuesday and lasting all of next week and into next weekend we will see a strong onshore wind flow. So more surf then!

Models are also showing a strong low pressure system form somewhere between the Bahamas and Bermuda mid-week. If this forms it looks to provide a nice sized NE ground swell for the following weekend!

Next update Saturday morning.

November 24, 2014
  Tuesday: 2-3 feet
Tuesday: 2-3 feet South to SW winds.

SE swell looks to remain into Tuesday but drop from Monday.

South winds look to blow into Tuesday.

A cold front looks to move through on Wednesday. Strong NW winds for Wednesday and Thursday. This looks to blow any swell to barely rideable.

We should see the winds veer from the NE late Friday and into the weekend. This should pick the surf back up to the 2-4 feet range with choppy conditions.

Also, a low pressure looks to form off of North Florida and move up the coast as a Nor'easter. This low may kick back a NE ground swell. However, most models show it hug the coast too much. It is something to keep an eye on.

Next update Wednesday morning.

November 23, 2014
  Sunday: 3-5+ in choppy conditions
Sunday: super choppy conditions with strong E to SE winds.

Look for a clean up into Monday as the local wind forecast calls for SW winds.

We should see the swell size get knocked down by the offshore winds but may be pretty fun before it does. Monday looks to be around 2-4 feet with South to SW winds. Check the reports.

Swell looks to drop into mid-week. Also, another strong cold front looks to move through Florida late Wednesday and into Thanksgiving. Strong North to NW winds for late Wed/Thursday. Wind looks to veer from the North to NE into Black Friday and this should increase the surf into next weekend.

Also, a coastal low pressure system may form off of North Florida and move up to Hatteras and turn into a Nor'easter late week. This may enhance the surf size if it forms and we could see bigger NE ground swell into the weekend! Not all models show the low pressure system off the coast far enough though. It may hug the coast too much to kick back a swell. Something to keep an eye on though!

Next update Monday night.

  Wednesday: 2-3 feet in choppy wind swell
Wednesday: 2-3 feet in North to NE wind swell

Looks to be blown out for Wednesday. Wind forecast calls for North to NE. So different forecast. Wind looks to be strong so all chopped out.

Wind looks to veer from the NE into Thursday and last for a few days and into the weekend.

We should see building NE wind swell late Thursday and into Friday. Saturday looks like it may have some size with a healthy onshore wind flow. Around 3-5 feet.

Long range looks like wind turns from the SE into late weekend with continued moderate sized wind swell and choppy conditions.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Monday: 1-3 feet in small swell
Monday: 1-3 feet.

Sunday saw pretty fun small surf. Monday looks to drop but remain rideable.

A cold front looks to move through Florida on Monday night. Strong North to NW winds for Tuesday and mid-week with very little surf.

High pressure builds into late weekend. We should see building new onshore wind swell for Friday and next weekend. A good onshore wind fetch looks to set up for next weekend and we should see a mix of wind and ground swell.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Tuesday: small in the morning and building into the afternoon.
Tuesday: 1-3 feet in the morning.

The swell should build into Tuesday afternoon. The low pressure that is off of North Florida looks to move North. There was some NE wind fetch off of Hatteras to Georgia on Monday. We should see a small NE swell fill in as the day goes on.

However, local winds are blowing hard from the NW. These winds should slow down into the afternoon and with low tide, we may see a fun little swell.

Check the reports/cams into Tuesday afternoon for anything.

We should see small NE swell into mid-week. But, basically check the reports before driving a distance. With a low pressure so close to the coast it is difficult to determine which spot will break.

Weekend has the potential for more surf. A cold front looks to move into Florida on Friday. A strong low may be off the coast of Hatteras with this system. We may see more North to NE swell for the weekend.

Next update Thursday morning.

November 9, 2014
  Sunday: 2-3 feet with NW winds
Sunday: 2-3 feet with NW winds.

A weak low pressure system is on top of Florida today. This system looks to move up the coast into Monday and Tuesday.

We should see moderately strong NW winds into Sunday and Monday, then North into Tuesday. Surf should be rideable for both Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday looks to be the better day as the low moves NE and sends in a small NE ground swell around 2-4 feet.

Mid-week looks like continued small 2-3 feet rideable surf.

Long range looks pretty good for next weekend. A low pressure system looks to spin off of Hatteras on Friday. We may see a NE ground swell from that next weekend.

Next update Monday night.

  Friday: 2-3 feet. Semi-glassy conditions with NW winds
Friday: 2-3 feet, NW winds.

A cool front moved through Florida Thursday night and continues into Friday. NW winds look to put a surface bump on it. Surf is smaller than Thursday.

I expect to see small 2-3 feet into the weekend. We should see East to NE winds pick up on Saturday. Then North on Sunday. This looks to keep the surf up but also with choppy conditions.

Surf looks to stay on the small side early next week. Long range models shows a strong low pressure system off of Hatteras late week. This may be our next big swell maker.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet in choppy wind swell
Wednesday: 2-4 feet in choppy wind swell

Choppy surf continues.

Surf looks to stay in the 2-4 feet range through Thursday and Friday.

Local winds look to blow hard on Wednesday then slack off into Thursday.

A cold front looks to move through Florida late Thursday. It looks like possible offshore winds late Thursday and NW for Friday morning. Wind probably will veer from the NE into the weekend.

No major swell makers are showing. But, we should have continued small surf for the next few days and into the weekend.

Next update Friday morning.

  Saturday: small to flat with strong NW winds
Saturday: small to flat with offshore winds.

Local wind looks to blow strong offshore for Saturday and Sunday. Conditions look to be small on Saturday and build into Sunday. A new NE swell looks to fill in on Sunday. Check the reports.

Wind looks to veer from the NE into Monday. Then, all of next week strong onshore wind is forecast. This should keep us in moderately big and choppy surf all of next week.

Wind looks to slow down around Thursday.

Next update Sunday night.
