  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.

Sunday: small/flat

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.

Mostly flat, maybe a small wave to be found, but don't expect much.

No major swell makers are in the forecast.

Virtual buoy shows a slight increase for Thursday and into Friday. But, probably super small.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Wednesday: 1-3 feet in remnant swell
Wednesday: 1-3 feet. Glassy morning afternoon chop.

You may be able to catch a small wave into Wednesday. Bertha swell really dropped off from Tuesday. Check the reports for anything.

It looks to stay flat to barely rideable the next few days. No swells are in the forecast. However, we may see small longboard waves as the virtual buoy forecast shows small surf for the next few days. Friday and Saturday shows a small trade wind swell. So, maybe a small wave then.

Otherwise, no major swell makers are in the forecast.

Next update Thursday night.

  Tuesday: Bertha swell and offshore winds
Check the reports and cams in the morning. We should see long period SE swell with offshore winds today.

I have no guess on the size. But, swell will probably drop into Wednesday.

Next update late Tuesday night.

  Monday: 2-3 feet with occassional bigger sets
Monday: 2-3 feet.

Sunday saw a nice swell arrive. It was around 3-4 feet with some power. I expect this swell to last into Monday. This was from a localized low pressure system just East of the Bahamas.

We should see swell from Bertha come in late Monday and into Tuesday. Bertha looks to stay relatively weak and move up the coast the next few days. We should see rideable surf from Bertha. Swell size looks to be around 3-4 feet.

We also have a weak low pressure system currently off of Florida on Sunday. This system looks to stay weak and move out.

Local winds looks to be SW with afternoon onshore winds.

Check the reports for this swell the next few days. Bertha should send in a swell and the outer buoys do show swell. But, it may not be as big as one would think with a storm off the coast. Most of the wind fetch is pointed up to Hatteras. But, we should see 2-4+ feet surf into Tuesday. Wednesday will probably be much smaller. If Bertha does turn into a Hurricane there is a chance we see bigger surf from it. However, the National Hurricane Center is saying that it may not strengthen that much.

Next update Monday night.

Surf was fun on Sunday. Around 4 feet with some power. I'll take a look at Bertha's potential later tonight.

  Friday: Small to barely rideable
Friday: small to barely rideable.

It may be rideable at the small wave spots but don't expect much.

Not much in the long range forecast.

I'm taking another break and allow the tropics to heat up.

Next update Saturday Aug. 2nd.
