  Tuesday: 2-3 feet, Choppy NE winds. Picking up into the afternoon.
Tuesday: 2-3 feet in morning and picking up into the afternoon.

Looks like a fresh North to NE wind starts to pick up into Tuesday. Then by mid-week it blows stronger NE. We should see a long duration mix of NE wind and ground swell on Wednesday and into the weekend. Size looks to be around 3-5 feet. Maybe bigger.

Onshore winds Wednesday and into the weekend will keep it super choppy conditions.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Saturday: 3-5 feet with choppy conditions
Saturday: 3-5 feet with choppy conditions.

Continued surf for the weekend and even more next week.

Our streak of surf has been a long one! Unfortunately most of it has been with onshore wind and keeping it choppy.

Saturday looks like onshore wind chop with Sunday the wind relaxing. But, remaining choppy.

A new round of onshore wind looks to happen next week. Monday looks to start out smaller around 2-3 feet but stronger winds pick up Tuesday and last into the weekend. Surf size should pick up also in the 3-5 foot range.

Models show the possibility of a low pressure off of Hatteras later in the week and this may provide bigger NE ground swell.

Next update Sunday night.

  Wednesday: Continued 2-4 feet and choppy
Similar conditions as the past week. Onshore wind and 2 to 4 feet surf.

This should last the next several days and into early next week. Weekend looks windier and a little bigger.

Maybe a break in the local winds on Tuesday.

Next update Friday night.

  Friday: 3-5 feet with surface chop
Friday: 3-5 feet onshore winds.

Winds have slowed down today but there remains a surface chop. Local wind looks to blow from the E to SE today.

Weekend looks like the size may drop a little bit and wind remain SE but even lighter. Thus, Saturday may be fun. I haven't surfed all week due to the wicked onshore winds but looks to wet the gills this weekend.

We should have surf all weekend with the wind blowing from the SE.

No major swell makers are showing on the long range but it does look like consistent 2-4 feet surf for Monday and all of next week. Monday is a holiday.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Big Surf, Windy Conditions
Its been big and windy/choppy.

Surf forecast has been really not needed. A WIND FORECAST is more important!

We have had big choppy surf for weeks now. The wind looks like it will slow down into the weekend but remain blowing onshore (SE). Maybe a clean up but doubt it.

Next update Friday morning and looking at the storms bouncing around Florida.

Its been crazy.

Weather looks interesting coming up this weekend and next week. We should have some more surf. I've been super busy surfing/work. I'll take a real good look at the upcoming forecast on Saturday morning.

  Big surf from Hurricane Maria
Needless to say or forecast. We have big swell from Hurricane Maria arriving Saturday night. Sunday looks to get pretty big. Long period ESE swell. Hopefully we have favorable winds all of next week. Surf should stay big Sunday through Infinity...Thus, no need to do a surf forecast. Check the local wind forecast and Go Surf!

Next update Friday Sept 29th.

  Wednesday: 3-5 feet with a surface chop
Wednesday: 3-5 feet with choppy conditions

Swell from Jose looks to continue into the next couple of days and the weekend. It looks to decay though with onshore winds forecast. Swells from Maria look to arrive Saturday afternoon and get really big on Sunday and early next week. Favorable wind is forecast for early next week.

Surf looks to drop for Thursday to the 2-4 foot range and long wait for sets. Wind onshore. Friday about the same.

Saturday looks like a fresh NE wind develops and keeping it choppy with a mix of new wind swell and long period from both a decaying Jose swell and new incoming Maria swell.

Sunday looks really big with strong onshores.

Maria is forecast to follow Jose's track up the coast. The surf should get really good once Maria moves North of us and the local wind either dies or blows offshore.

Early next week has the potential to be really good.

Next update Friday morning.

  Sunday: Big surf with NW winds
Sunday: Big surf with NW winds.

Jose swell is maxed out today. The buoys show big swell.

Swell looks to decay each day this week with Sunday the biggest around 6 foot plus. I haven't seen it yet but probably bigger South and smaller the further North you go in Brevard.

The local wind looks to blow from the NW in the morning then switch from the North as the day goes on. Onshore winds for Monday.

Next update Sunday afternoon.

  Saturday: Big surf from Jose
Saturday: Big surf from Jose.

I haven't had internet or power since last weekend. I have been surfing and it was fun earlier in the week.

Jose swell looks to come in Friday afternoon. Should be big through the weekend and early next week.

Local winds look mostly onshore. Swell looks to last into mid-week.

If you haven't heard from me it is due to loss of connectivity.

Next update probably the weekend.

  Big and Choppy until Irma moves North of us, then later in week swell from Jose
Nasty conditions through Monday. Not doing a surf forecast. But, look to surf next week after Irma moves North of us and Jose swell. Be careful and play it safe!

Next update Wednesday morning (if have internet).

  Tuesday: small surf
Tuesday: small to barely rideable.

We should see an ESE swell fill in on the buoys later today and into Wednesday. Surf size looks to pick up on Wednesday in the 3-4 foot range with long period swell.

Local wind forecast looks good for early Wednesday.

Swell gets larger into Thursday and each day into the weekend. Unfortunately onshore winds come with it and pick up each day as well.

Tuesday morning model runs and the NHC have Irma as a very strong hurricane tracking between Florida and Cuba by Sunday. We will see huge surf and strong onshore winds this morning. After that the cane looks to recurve. When that happens is anyone's guess.

Small/flat Tuesday morning. Should see early forerunners Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday picks up long period ESE swell from Irma. Then after that choppy bigger surf Thursday and into the weekend.

Next update Wednesday night.
