  Tuesday: 3-4 feet with choppy conditions
Tuesday: 3-4 feet and choppy

Continued mix of NE wind and ground swell into Tuesday. Local wind looks to remain blowing onshore and keeping it choppy.

We should see the wind calm down some into Wednesday. This should clean it up some. However, swell looks to drop to 2-3 feet.

Rest of the week looks like small 1-3 feet mix of remnant NE swell and SE trade wind swell.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Monday: surfs up
Monday: surfs up. So are the onshore winds.

The local wind forecast shows the winds slowing down into Tuesday and Wednesday. The swell should taper off in size the next couple of days as well.

Next update Monday night.

  Saturday: small/flat
Saturday: small/flat

Not much of any swell for Saturday. Maybe near dusk we will see a small bump.

A weak low pressure system is currently spinning off of Hatteras this Saturday morning. We should see NE swell from this system into Sunday. I expect the surf to rapidly increase all day Sunday and topping out around 3-5 feet.

Local wind forecast calls for onshore winds on Sunday. North in the morning then NE into the afternoon. This looks to provide a NE wind swell and make the conditions choppy.

Swell looks to peak on Monday and last into Wednesday and taper off in size. Local wind forecast calls for onshore winds for the next few days with it slowing down into Tuesday/Wednesday.

Models have the low spin up on Sat/Sun, then move North and fizz out. A summer time Bermuda High looks to move in by mid-week. We probably will see small SE trade wind swell after this NE swell fades out.

Rare NE swell in June. Looks to be choppy. But, what can we do? Surf On!

Next update Sunday night.

  Thursday: flat
Thursday: flat

Looks to be flat Thur/Fri/Saturday

A new swell looks to develop on Sunday. Models show a low pressure forming off the Carolinas and a weak front to push through Florida on Sunday. Local winds also look to pick up from the NE on Sunday.

Having a NE swell like this in June is pretty rare. Models have been having problems on exact location of low pressure, but they have been consistent all week on placing a low pressure in our swell window.

Sunday looks like small stuff in morning then build into the afternoon. Virtual buoys shows pretty big surf into Monday.

Local wind forecast for Sunday and Monday are onshore thus probably choppy conditions. However, what the actual weather will do is up for debate. Depending on how close the low is to Florida the local wind forecast may change. Also, maybe a secondary low forms somewhere near Florida as well. Time will tell. However, it looks like we will see a rare winter-like NE swell in June!

Next update Friday night.

  Tuesday: small/flat
Tuesday: small/flat

No swells in the forecast for the week.

Models have downgraded the potential NE swell for the weekend. Something still may happen, but the outlook has gotten worse since the last couple day's model runs.

Small/flat for the next few days. Looking for "maybe" something Sunday or early next week.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Monday small/flat
Monday: small/flat

No swells for the upcoming work week.

The models show an anomalous low pressure system off of Hatteras for next weekend. Something to keep an eye on. A winter like Nor'easter in June is highly unlikely but the models show one in the long range forecast. It is difficult to believe but whatever, stranger things have happened.

Flat for the rest of the week and looking for possible swell for the weekend.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Monday: small and windy
Monday: Small surf with south winds.

A tropical storm looks to move over Florida Monday evening. Unfortunately it doesn't look to provide any surf for us. However, of course keep an eye on it just in case forecast changes.

No swell makers are in the long range.

Mostly just small and barely rideable.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Thursday: Small/flat
Thursday: small/flat

Mostly small surf. Check the small wave spots for anything.

Doesn't look like any swell going into Friday or the weekend either.

A low pressure is showing to form in the Gulf the next few days. Models have it moving over Florida by early next week. So far it doesn't look like a swell maker for us as it moves too quickly with no NE wind fetch pointed back at us. However, this may change and something to keep an eye on.

Small to flat the next few days and early next week. Keeping an eye on the tropics and the Gulf of Mexico.

Next update Friday night.

  Tuesday: small to barely rideable
Tuesday: Small surf

Doesn't look like much surf for the upcoming week. Mostly small to barely rideable. Check the small wave spots for anything.

We probably will just see small summertime dribble the rest of the week and into next weekend. No major swells are in the forecast.

Models do show some activity in the gulf and over the State later in the week. Mostly looking like a rain event.

The official start of Hurricane season is tomorrow.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Weekend Surf
Check the reports. We should have some surf this weekend. NHC on Friday afternoon has given that low a name of TD #2. Possible tropical storm into Saturday. We should have waves. Everyone be safe and enjoy the 3 day weekend.

Next update Monday Night.

  Thursday: Choppy 2-3 feet
Thursday: choppy 2-3 feet.

Choppy wind swell continues into Thursday. Friday looks like it will also continue and may be a tad bigger. Local onshore wind swell looks to continue into the weekend.

A weak low pressure system, is showing to continue to move from currently East of the Bahamas to the SE coast this weekend. We should see a small NE-E ground swell from this system. NHC says it has a chance to be a named storm. However, models on Thursday morning keep it weak.

Along with the current onshore wind swell we should see a small mix if NE swell from this weak low into the weekend. Local wind forecast has the wind slowing down into Saturday and possible offshore sometime Sunday. However, with a low pressure this close the local wind forecast is iffy. I imagine Saturday morning may be lighter than Friday but with afternoon onshore. Sunday may see a offshore winds but again with afternoon onshores.

Size looks to be around 2-4 feet on Saturday, probably a little smaller on Sunday around 2-3 feet.

The official start of Hurricane season is June 1st. 3 day Memorial weekend is typically the unofficial start of summer. Any surf we get this time of year is rare. So, get on it!

Next update Friday morning.

  Tuesday: small surf
Tuesday: small surf.

Not much swell today but may be rideable at the small wave spots. Check the local reports.

We should see an uptick of onshore wind swell going into Wed/Thur/Friday. Onshore winds look to pick up then and provide 1-3 foot choppy wind swell.

Also, a weak low pressure system looks to move from the Bahamas and up to Hatteras later in the week. This system looks to move towards Hatteras into the weekend and looks to provide small SE ground swell for the weekend. Models keep it weak, but we are getting near Hurricane season...Keep an eye on this system. If anything it may offer a warm up paddle for the 3 day weekend. We should see a mix of small SE ground swell and wind swell from this system as it will be right off the Florida coast. Once the low moves to the North of us we should see offshore winds.

Long range forecast doesn't show much. Mostly small and choppy the next few days with the 3 day weekend showing some small rideable surf (2-3+ feet) for Saturday and maybe lasting into Sunday.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Wednesday: small to flat
Wednesday: small to flat

Not much of any swell the next few days.

Models are hinting at something will happen weekend and/or early next week. But, nothing definitive. They have been showing low pressure systems forming on over the SE States. So far they look to stay too far inland to send a NE swell. Predicting NE swell in late May is pretty much a crapshoot. I would be surprised if it happens.

We may see some small rideable waves for the weekend and early next week does show a small uptick on swell size. But, nothing major.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: small and barely rideablel
Monday: small to barely rideable

We may see a small SE wind swell for Tuesday/Wednesday but staying on the small side.

No major swells for the week and weekend.

A little bit of promise for early next week. Models show a possible low pressure off the SE Coast Sunday and into Monday. However, long way away and a winter like low in late May is hard to imagine. But, something to watch.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Thursday: 1-3 feet in remaining swell
Thursday: 1-3 feet. Glass morning afternoon chop.

Wednesday has small 2-3 feet surf. I expect it to last into Thursday morning at least.

There is a downward trend in the size after Thursday. Looking to be small to barely rideable for the next few days.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: Small and barely rideable
Monday: Weak surf.

We should see a small SE trade wind swell late Tuesday and into Wednesday. A SE wind looks to develop the next few days and keeping it in choppy conditions. Surf looks to be around 1-2 feet on Tuesday, and 2 to 3 feet on Wednesday. Small swell will probably linger into Thursday.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Tuesday morning.
