  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.

  Wednesday: 1-3 feet in small swell
Wednesday: 1-3 feet in NE swell

Buoys are showing a small swell for Wednesday. Check the reports and cams for the best spot.

Looks to stay on the small side the rest of the week. No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Thursday night.

Mostly small to barely rideable for the rest of the week. Only the typical summer time SE trade wind swell is showing. 1 maybe 2 feet surf.

No swells are in the long range forecast.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Friday: 2-3 feet. Glassy morning with afternoon chop
Friday: 2-3+ feet. Glassy morning with onshore winds in the afternoon.

Thursday morning was really good. It had some size. 6-8 feet with some power.

Unfortunately the buoys really dropped throughout the day on Thursday. I expect Friday morning to have waves but drop even further into Friday afternoon. Size looks to be around 2-3 feet with the potential of bigger sets.

Low Tide is early Friday so get it then.

Saturday is looking like 1-2 feet. We should see an increase on Sunday with choppy SE trade wind swell around 2-3 feet.

No swells are showing in the long range forecast. We should see small SE trade wind swell for Monday and early next week, but don't expect much.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednedsay: Big surf with semi-choppy conditions
Wednesday: Big Surf

We should see big surf into Wednesday from Hurricane Cristobal.

Wind is forecast to remain onshore into Wednesday and keeping it semi-choppy. It shouldn't be as strong as it has been though. So maybe a little better conditions.

Local wind forecast calls for light to offshore wind for Thursday morning. Needless to say, go surf Thursday morning! Afternoon onshores are predicted for Thursday.

Swell size look to drop into Thursday around 3-5 feet and even further into Friday and the weekend.

Will the surf be rideable for the 3 day weekend? Odds are that it should be. But, with declining swell. Probably 2-3 feet for Saturday and dropping to 1-2 for Sunday.

There is another tropical wave moving towards us by the weekend and early next week. Models keep it weak but that should provide small SE trade wind swell.

Really long range forecast shows a super strong Hurricane forming off of Africa next week. Something to keep an eye on!

Next update Thursday night.

  Monday: 2-4 feet in the morning and increasing into afternoon
Monday: 2-4 feet with semi-choppy conditions.

Swell from Cristobal looks to arrive on Monday. We saw a little bump into Sunday evening but the bulk of the swell looks to arrive into Monday afternoon and last for a few days.

Unfortunately the local wind forecast calls for onshore winds the next few days. This looks to bring in a choppy wind swell on top of the SE ground swell from Cristobal.

Cristobal is showing to move North of the Bahamas and Recurve out to sea. The storm should provide surf for us through Thursday.

Wind forecast calls for onshore winds Mon/Tue/Wed. But, wind forecast are tricky. Maybe we will get lucky with a calm wind morning. Swell looks to peak on Tuesday and start to decay into Wednesday.

Surf for the week!

Next update Tuesday night.

  Saturday: small to barely rideable
Saturday: Small to barely rideable

There might be a small wave to ride on Saturday. Check the reports. But, don't expect much.

Looks like we will start to see SE swell into Sunday afternoon. East Bahama buoy shows increased SE swell on it. That is typically 24 hours away. Check the Canaveral buoys on Sunday for anything.

If not Sunday, then Monday it will arrive.

The tracking of the disturbance is iffy. Some Saturday morning model runs show it coming ashore Florida by mid-week. Others, recurve out to sea. Thus, surf forecast is difficult.

We will see surf, however, the conditions will be determined on how close the storm comes to Florida. With that said, be prepared just in case this system turns into a major hurricane and runs into Florida. Also, be prepared for great surf if it does stay off the coast and provides offshore winds to go along with it!

Keep an eye on the latest NHC discussions and outlooks for the latest tracking.

Surf should be up all of next week. However, surf conditions are too difficult to guess at this point.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Thursday: small/flat
Thursday: small/flat

Basically no swell is forecast for Thursday and through the weekend.

Things are looking up for next week however.

We have a possible tropical storm brewing to the South of us and possible Low pressure off the NE coast of the U.S.

Nothing definitive at this point, but virtual buoys shows an upswing in the buoy size starting Monday of next week. We could be seeing some size by mid-week.

National Hurricane Center is watching a system currently near Puerto Rico and moving West. Models disagree on tracking but this is a system to keep an eye on. Thursday morning model runs have it recurving off the Bahamas and staying in the Atlantic. We will know more in the next coming days.

Next update Saturday morning.

You may be able to find a small wave today but don't expect much.

No swells for the upcoming days.

Long range shows hope for next week though. But, long way away in space and time.

Next update Monday night.

  Friday: small/flat
Friday: small/flat

Not much showing in the swell department.

Maybe a small wave for the weekend, but don't expect much and better maybe up in New Smyrna. A very small SE trade wind swell is showing off the Bahamas. Maybe that will provide something to ride up North.

No swells are in the long range forecast.

Next update Saturday morning.
