  Monday: 2-3 feet in mix of NE wind and ground swell
Monday: 2-3 feet.

A mix of NE wind swell and ground swell for Monday.

Surf is a lot smaller than this past weekend but should still be rideable for Monday.

It looks to stay small through the week.

A new NE wind swell looks to happen Thursday and into the weekend. Stronger NE winds are forecast for later in the week. Possible Low pressure off the coast. Also, long range models put a low, possible tropical storm, in the Gulf later in the week/weekend.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Thursday: small in the morning with new ground swell filling in the afternoon
Thursday: small in morning picking up as day goes on.

Early Dawn Thursday no swell was showing. However, the buoys show swell coming.

It should fill in today. SE angle swell and should have some size when it arrives.

Swell looks to last into the weekend. Winds offshore for Thur/Fri.

Next week shows promise as well.

Taking a few days off. Go Surf!

Next update Sunday night.

  Wednesday: 1-3 feet
Wednesday: 1-3 feet and semi-glassy conditions

Small surf can be found on Wednesday. Offshore winds look to blow fairly hard and putting a surface chop on it. Check the reports for the best spots.

Hurricane swell should fill in on Thursday. Timing looks to be around noon. Local winds look to blow from the NW. A cold front looks to swing through Florida on Wednesday and provide NW winds for Thurs/Friday.

Size from this swell looks to be around 4-6+ feet. Possible bigger set waves at its peak. Swell should last into the weekend. The East Bahama buoy this Wednesday morning shows really big swell. Bahamas look to block a lot of the swell for South Florida so look North for bigger surf.

Swell looks to peak Thursday and into Friday and then decay into the weekend.

Long range forecast is looking pretty good for next week. A possible Nor'easter and a tropical storm in the Gulf.

Next update Thursday night.

  Tuesday: 2-4 feet in choppy swell
Tuesday: 2-4 feet in choppy conditions

We should see a mix of wind and small ground swell into Tuesday. Monday saw 3-4 feet and choppy surf. Local wind looks to remain blowing onshore into Tuesday.

Period swell models show long period SE swell from Gonzalo mid-day Thursday and last into the weekend. We also have a cold front that may swing through Florida later on in the week. This front may bring offshore winds for the Gonzalo swell!

Next update Wednesday night.

  Thursday: 1-2 feet
Thursday: 1-2 feet with semi-choppy conditions.

Small surf can be found for Thursday but don't expect much.

It looks like we will see a slight bump up into the 3 day weekend.

A weak low pressure and coupled with a High Pressure to the North looks to setup a wind fetch into Central Florida. Size doesn't look to be too big but maybe around 3-4 feet at its peak.

Onshore winds come with it as well so we will see a mix of wind and ground swell.

Swell looks to arrive late Friday and last into Monday. Expect choppy conditions with an onshore wind flow.

The low looks to move up towards Bermuda and potentially gain strength. However, Thursday morning model runs keep it weak.

Long range shows the potential of another weak low pressure system develop East of the Bahamas late next week. Another system to keep an eye on!

Look for small choppy waves this weekend.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Wednesday: small rideable surf
Wednesday: 1-3 feet in semi-choppy surf.

Looks to stay small the next couple of days.

Surf forecast has changed. It is looking like we will see bigger surf for the weekend. Possible tropical development into Friday and the weekend off the coast. Models have been hinting at some sort of tropical storm development around Florida. Tuesday evening model runs show something to the NE of the Bahamas for the weekend!

Can't wait to see Wednesday's model runs! Something to watch!

Next update Wednesday night.

  Tuesday: 2-3 feet in small swell
Tuesday: 2-3 feet with semi-choppy conditions

A small NE swell is showing on the buoys. Check the reports and cams.

It looks to stay small and rideable the next few days. Later on in the week it look like we will see a SE trade wind swell fill in. But, staying small.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Long range models do show a strong Hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico next week. That is something to keep an eye on!

Next update Tuesday night.

October 1, 2014
  Wednesday: small to barely rideable
Wednesday: small surf

Small swell showing so don't expect much. Check the reports/cams.

Looks like we could see a swell for the weekend. A low pressure looks to spin off the New England Coast this weekend. This could send in a swell.

I'll take a better look at in on Thursday with the models becoming more in focus. It looks like we will get a weather pattern change this weekend. NW winds may usher in drier air for a change and get all this rain out of here.

Next update Thursday night.

  Super Busy this week and weekend, taking forecast break.
Check the reports/cams. Looks like waves coming for the end of the week. I'll be out there surfing but am super busy with other hobbies so no time to update the forecast.

Next update Late Monday Night Sept 29th.

A small swell happened on Sunday. This should continue into Monday.

Check the reports/cams.

Looks like small rideable surf all week. Potential for bigger surf towards the end of the week.

I'll take a better look at the forecast Monday night.

  Friday: 2-3 feet in continued swell from Edouard. choppy conditions
Friday: 2-3 feet. Choppy conditions from onshore winds.

Swell from Edouard is still showing on the buoys early this Friday morning. We should see continued swell from the hurricane today. But, of course a lot smaller than Wednesday and Thursday. An onshore wind looks to put a surface chop on it.

Swell looks to drop into Saturday around 1-2 feet. However, a local NE wind surge looks to take place Friday afternoon and into Saturday. This looks to really chop it out but also provide a 2-3 feet choppy wind swell.

A weak low pressure looks to be off of Jacksonville today and move NE. We may see a small swell from this system late Saturday and into Sunday. The local winds look to turn offshore as it pulls away from the coast. Maybe late Saturday or Sunday the winds could turn offshore. This will clean up any remaining swell. I don't expect much, but could be good. Check the reports/cams then.

Long range forecast shows the potential of strong onshore winds by midweek. A long East to NE wind fetch may form by Wednesday and into Thursday. This looks to possibly be our next swell maker.

Next update Sunday mid-day.

  Monday: small/flat
Monday: small to flat

New swell looks to arrive late Tuesday and peak on Wednesday. Swell from Hurricane Edouard looks to have some size. Long period swell from the ESE. Swell should last into Thursday and Friday but drop in size each day.

Size is difficult to predict but we should see surf over 6 feet on Wednesday. Super long period so long lines and long wait between sets.

Wind forecast looks ideal with offshore winds forecast for Wednesday.

Swell should hang around for Thursday around 4-6 feet. Swell angle may be more East.

Friday continued swell but drop in size more.

The weekend should still have something but difficult to guess the size. We may still see faint swell into the weekend.

Edouard is a cat 2 hurricane this Monday morning. It is well out to sea and is forecast to recurve to the NE. Swell should be pretty good from Edouard. The storm moved towards us for a few days and was strong enough. I expect 14 to 17 second periods from this storm. With a long period swell it can be deceiving by looking small before the bigger sets come in and clean up the line up! Be safe out there.

Long range forecast calls for a NE swell late weekend and into early next week.

Next update Tuesday night with a better look at the size forecast as we should be able to see the forerunners on the outer buoys.

  Saturday: small surf, choppy conditions
Saturday: small and choppy

There may be rideable surf for Saturday. But, don't expect much.

Surf looks to pick up late Tuesday and into Wednesday with very long period swell.

There is a tropical storm spinning way out in the Atlantic. Swell period models show swell arriving mid-week. This storm is a very far away so I expect the swell period to be 14+ seconds. That usually means a very long wait between sets and not every spot breaking.

Other than that, no other swells are showing. We are in the middle of Hurricane Season and this time of year storms can flare up quicker than forecast. With that said, keep an eye out for the tropics! Typically when the boiling pot lid blows off it overflows!

Next update Sunday night.

  Friday: 1-3 feet and choppy
Friday: 1-3 feet and choppy.

A tropical wave on top of the Bahamas looks to bump the surf up a little for Friday and Saturday. Surf looks to be in the 1-3 foot range with choppy conditions.

We also have Tropical Storm Edouard way out in the Atlantic along with some other potential swell makers in the long range forecast.

Virtual buoy models shows swell pick up next week late Tuesday and into Wednesday.

Long range models also put a tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico next week also.

So, the tropics look like they are finally heating up. Its been a long wait!

Next update Saturday morning.
